Four-Star Lineman Sets Official Visit To Tennessee

    by -

    Chattanooga offensive lineman Brycen Sanders plans to take an official visit to Tennessee on May 27-29, the four-star announced on his Twitter Monday night.

    Memorial Day weekend is setting up to be a big visit weekend for Josh Heupel and his staff with the potential for a number of blue chip recruits to be on campus.

    Sanders locking in his official visit is huge for Tennessee as the Baylor School lineman will make his college decision on June 23. The interior offensive lineman is deciding between a top four of Tennessee, Oklahoma, Ole Miss and LSU.

    Sanders took an official visit to Ole Miss last month and also set up an official visit to Oklahoma the weekend after his official visit to Tennessee. The Chattanooga offensive lineman hasn’t set up an official visit to LSU, but has been to Baton Rouge in his number of unofficial visits in 2022.

    The 6-foot-5, 280 pound lineman visited Tennessee in January and March and also has taken an unofficial visit to Oklahoma and LSU this year.

    A pair of ‘Volunteer State’ offensive lineman have already committed to Tennessee, but Sanders would be the highest ranked player in the group. Sanders ranks as the nation’s 287th best prospect according to the 247sports composite rankings and the 237th best prospect according to the On3 consensus rankings.

    The lineman is the sixth best player in the state of Tennessee. If Sanders committed to Tennessee, the vols would hold commitments from four of the top 20 players inside its own state.

    Tennessee currently holds nine commitments and the No. 7 recruiting class in 2023 according to the 247sports team rankings.

    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.
