Tennessee has added a new commitment in the 2017 class, and it’s at a position UT fans might not have expected.
Kicker Brent Cimaglia, who was previously committed to Southern Miss, flipped to the Vols on Sunday evening, giving UT its ninth commitment in the 2017 class.
Cimaglia, a Franklin, TN native is ranked as a 3-star recruit in the 247Sports Composite ranking and the No. 5 overall kicker in the nation.
The Vols currently have one scholarship placekicker on the roster – junior Aaron Medley. Expect Cimaglia to take a redshirt season in 2017 when he gets on campus and will likely be in position to compete for the starting kicking job in 2018 and beyond.
