WATCH: Tennessee QB Commit Nico Iamaleava Is Throwing Dimes in Knoxville

    by -

    Tennessee commit Nico Iamaleava is in Knoxville this weekend and the five-star quarterback is already throwing touchdowns on the football field.

    While participating in the Pylon 7-on-7 tournament in Knoxville on Saturday morning, Iamaleava was throwing darts all over the field to Team T.O.A.

    Iamaleava’s squad went through three contests on Saturday, battling the sleet, rain, and snow along the way.

    For many, it was the first chance to see Iamaleava live and in-person on the field since his commitment. Iamaleava announced his verbal commitment to the University of Tennessee on Mar. 21 and has taken the town by storm ever since.

    One of the most noticeable aspects of Iamaleava’s game on Saturday was his deep ball accuracy. On a few different occasions, Iamaleava was able to complete tricky throws down the field and into the endzone, changing the arc of his throw to fit the needs of the play with precision.

    Iamaleava’s Team T.O.A. also includes four-star class of 2024 wide receiver Jordan Anderson and three-star safety and Tennessee commit Jack Luttrell.

    In addition, Nico’s brother, Madden Iamaleava, was also participating in the tournament on his brother’s team. Madden Iamaleava is a quarterback in the class of 2025, yet to be ranked, but has all the early potential to be a highly valued quarterback in his class.
