Jimmy Scott, a defensive end from Hamburg, New York, committed to Tennessee over Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Arkansas on Sunday afternoon, becoming the Vols’ first commitment of the 2022 recruiting class.

The 6-foot-3, 250-pounder from St. Francis High School in Hamburg is ranked a three-star by 247Sports. Scott is considered the 29th-best strongside defensive end by 247, and the No. 2 overall prospect in the state of New York.

Scott holds offers from 16 schools, including three SEC schools in Arkansas, Ole Miss and Texas A&M. Arizona State, Duke, Maryland, Michigan State, Minnesota and NC State are other notable schools he has received an offer from.

Tennessee will spend a lot of time in its home state throughout the 2022 recruiting cycle, as the Volunteer State has several talented prospects sprinkled within the boundaries. Scott gets the class going, however, as his primary recruiter Joe Osovet takes advantage of his ties to the Northeast. Before arriving in Knoxville, Osovet was the head coach at ASA College, and Nassau Community College, respectively. Both schools are located in New York.

The Vols will lose six senior defensive linemen following the 2020 season, placing a huge emphasis on defensive linemen both in the 2021, and 2022 recruiting classes for Tennessee head coach Jeremy Pruitt and first-year defensive line coach Jimmy Brumbaugh.
