Vols Pick Up Wide Receiver Commitment

    by -

    Tennessee’s been looking for another receiver in the 2017 class, and they found one on Tuesday evening.

    Three-star receiver Josh Palmer of St. Thomas Aquinas (Fla.) High School committed to the Vols over an impressive offer list that includes UCLA, Michigan, Nebraska, Penn State and several other Power 5 programs.

    Palmer (6-1, 185) is the fourth receiver in the 2017 class for the Vols, joining Jacquez Jones, Princeton Fant and Jordan Murphy.

    Tennessee has placed an added emphasis on the position in recruiting after leading receiver Josh Malone declared for the NFL Draft earlier in January. Tennessee also lost former five-star receiver Preston Williams in the middle of the season as well as Vincent Perry, who was ineligible in 2016 and has since left the program.

    With the addition of Palmer, Tennessee now has 28 commitments in the 2017 class, which is ranked No. 11 in the nation as of Tuesday evening, per 247Sports.
