Four-Star Florida Wide Receiver Visits Vols

    by -

    One of the top wide receivers in the state of Florida in the 2021 class is currently on Tennessee’s campus for a Junior Day visit.

    Romello Brinson, a four-star wide receiver who plays for Northwestern High School in Miami, tweeted out on Saturday that he is in Knoxville, making his first trip to UT’s campus.

    The 6-foot-2, 180-pound wideout is the No. 148 overall prospect and No. 30 receiver in the 2021 class per the 247Sports Composite rankings. Earlier this week, Brinson tweeted out that he would be visiting Auburn, South Carolina, and Tennessee this week. The talented receiver was on Auburn’s campus on Friday, and now he’s on Tennessee’s campus.

    Brinson picked up an offer from the Vols back on May 1st of 2019. At the time, Brinson was committed to Miami, pledging himself to the Hurricanes on February 10th. But on November 24th, he reopened his recruitment and decommitted from Miami.

    Now, the speedy and dynamic receiver is just taking things slow. He holds offers from schools like Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Georgia, Florida, Auburn, and many others. Tennessee made his new top 10 a week ago, and they were included along with Miami, Alabama, Clemson, LSU, Penn State, Georgia, Texas A&M, Florida, and Nebraska.

    Brinson is one of several 2021 prospects who are on UT’s campus this weekend, and Tennessee’s coaches are set to host a plethora of 2021 recruits in the month of January before the dead period begins in February.

    As a junior last season for Northwestern, Brinson caught 43 passes for 834 yards and eight touchdowns according to MaxPreps.

    Tennessee currently has four players committed to the in their 2021 class. Four-star wide receiver Jordan Mosley, three-star cornerback Jay Jones, three-star athlete Nate Evans, and three-star athlete Elijah Howard are UT’s early junior commits. Wide receiver figures to be a big position of need for the Vols in the 2021 cycle.
