Tennessee already has one receiver inside their own state borders committed to them, and now another in-state wideout has UT as one of his top teams moving forward.
Tray Curry, a 6-foot-4, 210-pound receiver who plays for Bradley Central in Cleveland, TN, tweeted out his top 10 teams this weekend, and the Vols were included along with a host of other SEC schools. Tennessee made the cut along with Georgia, Auburn, Texas A&M, South Carolina, Mississippi State, Kentucky, Arkansas, Nebraska, and Virginia Tech.

The big receiver is right on the border of being a four-star on 247Sports, ranking as the No. 57 receiver and No. 10 prospect in the state per their ratings. In the composite ratings, Curry is the No. 391 overall prospect, No. 65 wide receiver, and No. 12 recruit in Tennessee.
Curry not only has over a dozen offers to play FBS football, but he holds offers to play in Division I basketball as well. He’s a standout on both the football field and basketball court for Bradley Central.
Tennessee gave Curry an offer back on December 14, 2018. He later attended a Junior Day event in mid-January of 2019, marking the second trip to Knoxville within a span of five months. He visited UT again when the Vols hosted BYU on September 7th this past season and again came to Knoxville when Tennessee hosted South Carolina to close out October.
The Vols were the second SEC school to offer Curry, with Arkansas being the first.
Auburn is the most recent team in Curry’s top 10 to offer him, giving him an offer on January 9th of this year. He made a trip down to The Plains for a Junior Day event in February before the COVID-19 outbreak temporarily shut down visits. Auburn has also offered Curry in men’s basketball.
Curry is a big wideout who plays very physically and isn’t afraid of contact. He’s a big red zone target and is used downfield a lot in Bradley Central’s offense. He has pretty quick feet for his size, and he knows how to use his big frame to his advantage. Curry is a good leaper who uses his basketball background effectively on the football field.
As a junior last season, Curry totaled over 1,200 yards of offense and scored 18 total touchdowns.
Tennessee currently has three projected wide receivers committed to them in their 2021 class. Four-star wideout Jordan Mosley, three-star in-state receiver Walker Merrill, and three-star athlete Roc Taylor are all pledged to the Vols right now.
