The Vols’ 2018 recruiting class has consisted of only in-state commitments thus far in this recruiting cycle. And that didn’t change on Thursday when Tennessee picked up another commitment from an in-state prospect for their 2018 class.
Shatar McClay, a three-star cornerback out of Clarksville, announced on Twitter that he has committed to Tennessee. McClay is the second player to commit to the Vols this week, joining three-star offensive lineman Ollie Lane as Tennessee’s newest commitments this week.

McClay plays a variety of positions for Northwest High School. His highlight film shows him mostly playing both a wildcat quarterback and corner for the Vikings. McClay also returns kicks and punts for Northwest. As a junior, McClay recorded 21 tackles, two interceptions (returning one for a touchdown), three pass breakups, and caused a fumble. He also averaged 26 yards on six kick returns and 22.9 yards on seven punt returns, returning one for a score as well.
Right now, McClay doesn’t have an impressive offer list. In fact, Tennessee is easily McClay’s best offer. He also holds offers from Indiana, Western Kentucky, and Samford. The Vols offered him in May of last year while Indiana offered him just last month.
McClay is Tennessee’s fourth commitment in their 2018 recruiting class. He joins the aforementioned Lane, five-star offensive lineman Cade Mays, and four-star athlete Alontae Taylor in the class.
