Coby arrives on Rocky Top following one season at Northeast Mississippi Community College in Booneville, Mississippi. He is originally from American Heritage High School in Delray Beach, Florida. He caught 24 passes for 422 yards and seven touchdowns this past season for Northeast Mississippi in seven games.
The 6-foot-2, 180 lbs. receiver also held offers from Arkansas State, Austin Peay, Louisiana-Monroe and Western Kentucky. He will be a freshman at Tennessee this fall and have five years to play four as a result of the NCAA deeming this past season a free year of eligibility.
Tennessee now has 21 total commits in the class of 2021. The Vols signed 19 players during the early signing period and have two players currently committed in Coby and three-star athlete Roc Taylor. UT added two transfer following the season in Auburn edge rusher Big Kat Bryant and Virginia Tech quarterback Hendon Hooker.
Kevin Steele is currently serving as Tennessee’s interim head coach while newly-hired athletic director Danny White begins his search to find the Vols a new head coach.
