Some of Tennessee’s commitments in their 2018 class had some impressive performances during this week’s slate of high school football games.
Four-star wide receiver Alontae Taylor of Coffee County High School turned in an eye-popping first half. Taylor totaled 161 rushing yards and three touchdowns as Coffee County led Tullahoma 28-7 at halftime. Unfortunately for Taylor’s team, Tullahoma would make an improbable comeback and defeat Coffee County 42-41.
In Tennessee’s back yard, three-star tight end commit Jacob Warren helped Farragut blow past McMinn Country 34-14 with a 75-yard touchdown grab. Warren hauled in four scores last week for Farragut.
Four-star safety Brendon Harris typically plays at safety, but he can make plays on offense too. And when his high school, Baylor, took on local power Knoxville Catholic, he showed off that play-making ability. Harris ripped off a 58-yard touchdown run in the first half, but his efforts weren’t enough in Catholic’s 56-24 romp. Five-star offensive line commit, Cade Mays, helped Catholic’s starting running back run for 169 yards on 24 attempts.
Three-star wide receiver Jatavious Harris down in Georgia made an incredibly athletic catch during Baldwin High School’s 45-0 victory over Wilkinson.

Not only did Harris haul in that touchdown pass, but according to himself, he finished the game with two other touchdowns as well.
