    The Tennessee Volunteers are adding in an additional player to their class of 2022 according to a post on Thursday. Former Air Force running back signee Jamar Price has officially flipped his commitment from Air Force and will join the Tennessee team as a preferred walk-on.

    Price, from Providence High School in Charlotte, NC, made his announcement to Twitter on Thursday morning.

    “First off, I’d like to thank God. Sometimes in life, things happen and we just don’t understand it, but we can always rely on God’s greater plan for us,” Price said to begin his post.

    “But, with all that being said, I’m proud to say that I will be committing to the University of Tennessee, Knoxville on a PWO to further my academic and athletic career!” Price continued on to say. “Thank you to everyone again, and GO VOLS!!”

    The 6-foot-1, 210-pound back ended his recruitment with two collegiate offers from Air Force and Navy. However, after committing to Air Force on July 1, Price then decommitted on Jan. 24. Six days later, Price was on Tennessee’s campus for an unofficial visit. And now, Price is the newest member of Tennessee’s class of 2022 roster.

    Price’s recruitment as a whole has taken a couple of twists and turns, though. Originally, Price had signed to play with Air Force during the Early Signing Period in December. However, due to Air Force’s standards, Price’s admission was disqualified due to his eczema condition. After that disqualification took place, Tennessee jumped on the opportunity to talk to Price, eventually bringing him in for the visit in January.

    According to his Twitter, Jamar Price was a First-Team All-Conference running back for Providence in North Carolina’s 4A West conference.

    After the chaos of National Signing Day settled down, the Tennessee Volunteers’ 2022 class ended with the No. 12 class on Rivals and the No. 16 class on On3 Sports and ESPN. However, the Vols’ National Signing Day wasn’t very chaotic on the outside, only signing one three-star commit, Jayson “Jenks” Jenkins. However, over the course of the days leading into National Singing Day, the Vols began to announce some talented players who will be joining the team in the preferred walk-on spots.

    One of those talented walk-on players is Bennett Brady, the top-ranked long-snapper in the state of Tennessee.
