Tennessee Commit Ethan Davis Adding To Big Recruiting Weekend

    by -

    Tennessee’s late-June recruiting weekend continues to get bigger and bigger. On Friday afternoon, Tennessee commit Ethan Davis announced that he will be visiting Tennessee from June 24-27, marking at least the fourth highly-touted recruit that will be in town that weekend.

    “My one and ONLY official visit,” Davis said in his Twitter post while tagging Josh Heupel, Alex Golesh, his high school coach, and other national scouts.

    Davis, a native of Suwanee, Georgia, was Tennessee’s second commit in the 2023 class after making his announcement back in December. The tight end is currently ranked as a four-star prospect according to On3 Sports, as well as the No. 4 tight end in the class and the No. 5 overall player from the state of Georgia.

    Additionally, Davis is ranked as the third-highest rated commit in Tennessee’s class, behind five-star QB Nico Iamaleava and four-star EDGE Caleb Herring.

    Ethan Davis is now the fourth high-profile prospect to recently announce a visit to Tennessee in late June. Joining Davis during that weekend will be three-star DB John Slaughter III, four-star defensive lineman Hunter Osborne, and four-star linebacker C.J. Allen.

    Slaughter, Osborne, and Allen all have yet to announce their collegiate commitment, unlike Davis.

    To this point, Davis has taken 12 unofficial visits, with Tennessee claiming five of those weekends. Additionally, Davis has yet to take another unofficial visit in the six months after his commitment.

    Davis’ first two unofficial visits to Tennessee came before his commitment last December but he has found his way back up to Knoxville three times since then. Now, according to his post on Friday, it looks like Davis has his official visit lined up with the Vols.

    Standing at 6-foot-4 with a weight of 215 pounds, Davis has been a tremendous two-sport athlete in high school both on the football field and the basketball court.

    As an athlete, Davis is wickedly versatile. His size and experience in the sport of basketball certainly give him an advantage with his movements on the football field. Davis’ natural athletic ability on the court translates over to the gridiron via his jumping and just all-around movement on the field. As a terrific athlete, Davis will be able to give Tennessee a lot of flexibility as a pass catcher on the football field. However, Davis certainly has the ability and aggressiveness to be a blocker as well.

    Tennessee commit and four-star tight end Ethan Davis will be back in Knoxville for his first and only official visit from June 24-27.
