Tennessee Lands Four-Star Georgia Receiver

    NFL Week 14 Preview: Jaguars Vs. Titans

    Georgia receiver Kaleb Webb committed to Tennessee Friday, the four-star receiver announced on Instagram live.

    Webb — a long time East Carolina commit — officially visited Tennessee last weekend before de-committing from the Pirates and listing a top three of Tennessee, Michigan and Louisville on Sunday.

    The 6-foot-2.5, 185 pound receiver saw his interest explode this fall as the Powder Springs, Georgia native totaled over 1,600 yards and 22 touchdowns in his senior year of high school.

    Webb’s play on the field made his recruitment explode. From the time his senior season began, Webb’s earned offers from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Virginia, Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Ole Miss, Louisville, South Carolina, UCF, Houston and Michigan.

    The McEachern High School native visited ECU, Louisville and Michigan this fall, but none stood out the way Tennessee did. The Vols got Webb on campus three times this fall including back-to-back weeks for the South Carolina and Ole Miss games.

    Webb ranks as a four-star and the nation’s No. 313 prospect according to the 247sports composite rankings. Tennessee’s newest commit ranks as the nations 48th best receiver and the 30th best player in the state of Georgia.

    The Georgia native becomes 18th player and fourth receiver in Tennessee’s 2022 recruiting class. The Vols could add some more firepower at receiver in the next week as Tennessee target Chandler Smith de-committed from Florida after visiting Knoxville.

    Webb’s commitment gives Tennessee the nation’s 16th ranked recruiting class and the SEC’s seventh best class.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
