    Vol fans and current Tennessee players celebrated and expressed their excitement after the Vols’ 30-24 win over No. 21 Auburn on the road on Saturday. But they weren’t the only ones celebrating Tennessee’s streak-busting victory.

    Tennessee’s future players, their commits in the 2019 recruiting class, were keeping a close eye on the Vols as they took on the Tigers on Saturday as well. And several of the Vols’ 20 commitments in the 2019 cycle celebrated online along with UT’s current players.

    Five-star offensive tackle Wanya Morris was in attendance at the game with his teammate and five-star Auburn commit Owen Pappoe. But Morris was the one who got the last laugh on Saturday.

    Three-star quarterback commit Brian Maurer didn’t hide his enthusiasm for his future team either, sending out a couple tweets after the Vols’ upset.

    Four-star wide receiver Ramel Keyton and four-star offensive lineman Jackson Lampley shared similar sentiments online after the victory.

    Three-star offensive lineman Chris Akporoghene and three-star cornerback Warren Burrell both reacted with a “Go Big Orange” after Tennessee’s win.

    Four-star safety Jaylen McCollough certainly got excited after the Vols’ win over the Tigers.

    Three-star tight end Sean Brown seems very excited for what the future holds at Tennessee.


    Uncommitted four-star wide receiver Jalen Curry was impressed by what he saw from the Vols on Saturday as well.

    Four-star defensive end and Alabama commit Justin Eboigbe was watching the Vols take down one of Alabama’s top rivals.

    Three-star athlete and Tennessee commit Aaron Beasley showed his excitement to be a Vol one day after the win.
