Vols Pick Up Commitment from 2017 Cornerback

    by -


    Butch Jones and his staff picked up their first commitment in the 2017 class in a month on Thursday night when Terrell Bailey announced he was committing to the Vols via Twitter.

    Bailey is a cornerback out of Marrero, Louisiana who is rated as high as a four-star corner on Rivals. He holds offers from several SEC schools. Texas A&M, Ole Miss, Arkansas, South Carolina, and Vanderbilt have all offered Bailey, as has Arizona State, Virginia Tech, and others.

    Bailey was considered a lean towards Texas A&M all the way up to his commitment. But in a surprise move, the nearly six-foot tall corner chose the Vols over the Aggies.

    His commitment now gives the Vols 25 overall commitments in the 2017 class. Bailey is now the fourth defensive back to commit to the Vols in the class, and he’s the third player projected as a corner to join the class.

    The Vols’ 2017 class is quickly filling up, and Terrell Bailey just made it a little more full. He’s also a player that could move up in the rankings considering his solid offer sheet and measurables.

    Here are the highlights from his junior year of high school:
