Tennessee is in the top five for Virginia Beach defensive lineman Jordan Williams, one of the top D-line targets in the 2016 class, joining Clemson, Virginia, Virginia Tech and Ohio State.

The Vols already have a commitment from four-star Virginia Beach defensive tackle Eric Crosby, and are looking to wrap up the pair.

 How He Fits

It was only a couple years ago that Tennessee had another Jordan Williams on the defensive line who played both defensive end and tackle. And this Jordan Williams could have a similar career if he ends up at Tennessee. He has the speed and athleticism to play end or the frame to play tackle if he added about 20-30 pounds. His versatility would make him a weapon and the coaching staff at Tennessee is making him a top priority for this class.
