Four-Star Tennessee Target Sets Commitment Date

    by -

    Four-star running back Treyaun Webb will make his college announcement on June 30th, the Jacksonville, Florida native announced over the weekend.

    Webb ranks as the nation’s 151st best player and fifth best running back according to the On3 consensus rankings.

    Tennessee made the talented ‘Sunshine State’ running back’s top five last month but appears to have some work to do if it wants to land the blue-chip running back in June.

    Web included Florida, South Carolina, Baylor and Penn State in his top five, but the Gators are reportedly out in front of the pack.

    Swamp247’s Thomas Goldkamp talked with Webb following the running back’s visit to Gainesville last week and the four-star said the instate Gators were leading the way.

    “Florida is probably my leader in my recruitment for a while now,” Webb told Goldkamp.

    The visits tell the same story. Webb has made the 73 mile trek from Jacksonville to Gainesville frequently, visiting Florida twice in April and once more in March.

    The four-star running back visited a handful of schools in the fall include Oklahoma, who he was once committed to, Penn State and Georgia.

    Tennessee didn’t off Webb until December and has yet to get him on campus for a visit. That is bound to changed according to Goldkamp’s report.

    Webb has set up four official visits and will see Florida on June 3, Penn State on June 11, Tennessee on June 18 and South Carolina on June 24 before making his college decision.

    While the Vols are playing catch up, getting Webb on campus gives Josh Heupel and running back’s coach Jerry Mack a puncher’s chance at landing the talented running back.

    Tennessee currently has seven commitments and the nation’s No. 11 recruiting class, according to the On3 team rankings. The bulk of Tennessee’s top commits are on the offensive side of the ball — including Nico Iamaleava and Ethan Davis. However, the Vols yet to have a running back committed.

    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.
