Four-Star Knoxville Lineman Commits to Tennessee

Trevor Duncan, a defensive end from Knoxville Catholic High School in the class of 2023, has officially announced that he is “staying home”.

On Friday morning, Duncan made his commitment to the University of Tennessee, marking him the seventh player in Tennessee’s class of 2023.

“Committed and staying home!!” Duncan said in a Twitter post while tagging his Knoxville Catholic and future Tennessee coaches in the tweet.

Rivals’ rankings list Duncan as a defensive lineman, 247 Sports has Duncan as an athlete in the class, and Duncan’s own Hudl profile lists him as a defensive end and tight end. One way or another, Duncan does possess a knack for getting after the quarterback from the edge position.

According to Rivals’ rankings, Duncan is listed as a four-star prospect, the 24th-ranked player at the DL position, and the sixth-ranked player from the state of Tennessee. 247 Sports’ rankings, though, have Duncan a bit lower. According to 247’s rankings, Duncan is listed as a three-star prospect and the 16th-ranked player in the state.

Before announcing his commitment to Tennessee on Friday morning, the 6-foot-6, 270-plus pound lineman had collected offers from Tennessee, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Virginia Tech, Purdue, and West Virginia.

Trevor Duncan is now Tennessee’s third highest-ranked commit in the 2023 class. In front of Duncan is only five-star quarterback Nico Iamaleava and four-star tight end Ethan Davis. According to 247’s rankings, Tennessee’s class now sits at No. 9 in the country and No. 3 in the SEC.

After struggling to bring in some of the top talents from the state of Tennessee in the class of 2022, the Vols have clearly put an emphasis on recruiting the Volunteer State in the 2023 class. Four of Tennessee’s first seven commits are in-state players: defensive end Trevor Duncan from Knoxville, edge rusher Nathan Robinson from Greenbrier, offensive tackle Ayden Bussell from Mt. Juliet, and wide receiver Nate Spillman from Nashville.

  1. I think he will make a fine DE. His high school coach really likes his motor and toughness.
