Tennessee Football Target Sets July Commitment Date

    by -

    Three-star Tennessee football target Cristian Conyer will make his college decision on July 3, Conyer announced on Twitter Sunday.

    The Bowling Green, Kentucky’s visit history depicts a two-team race in his recruitment. Conyer visited Tennessee in March and May and has an official visit to Knoxville set in June according to 247sports. The 6-foot-1 athlete has been a frequent visitor to Lexington as well, seeing Kentucky for Tennessee’s win in Lexington in November and then again in March and last weekend.

    Conyer has an official visit to Kentucky set the week before his June visit to Tennessee.

    Conyer ranks as a three-star and the No. 520 player in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The athlete is the No. 4 player in the state of Kentucky for the 2023 recruiting class.

    The South Warren High School standout is described as an “athlete” on recruiting sites and could project at receiver or defensive back. According to 247sports, Tennessee defensive backs coach Willie Martinez is Conyer lead recruiter.

    Tennessee boasts a top 10 recruiting class with nine commits as the calendar turns to June. The Vols have a pair of defensive backs committed in four-star safety Sylvester Smith and three-star safety Jack Luttrell. The Vols are also a top contender for Mississippi safety John Slaughter.

    While Tennessee has two safeties committed, the Vols don’t have a cornerback in the 2023 cycle.

    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.
