Tennessee continued to stay hot on the recruiting trail Friday afternoon with the addition of four-star Brendon Harris, giving the Vols another big in-state piece in the 2018 class.
Harris, who plays at the Baylor School in Chattanooga, Tenn., is the No. 151 ranked player in the nation and the fourth-best player in the state of Tennessee, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound safety chose the Vols over an impressive offer list that includes Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Oklahoma and over a dozen other major programs. Harris now gives Tennessee four of the top eight players in the state, according to the composite rankings. Tennessee’s class, which has 10 current commitments, is now ranked seventh nationally and second in the SEC.
Harris is the first safety commitment in the class, and he’ll be a big part of replacing current UT upperclassmen Todd Kelly Jr., Micah Abernathy Jr. and Evan Berry, all of whom have two or less years of eligibility remaining.
