A Pittsburgh, California native, Stallings plays his high school powerhouse Bishop Gorman. The Las Vegas football power is the same school that Tennessee receiver Cedric Tillman attended.
Stallings is a three-star prospect and ranks as the No. 1,118 player in the country and No. 11 player in the state of Las Vegas according to the 247sports composite rankings.
The 6-foot, 222-pound prospect ranks and projects as a running back at the collegiate level but also stars on the defensive side of the ball at linebacker in high school.

Stallings chose Tennessee over offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado and Pittsburgh. The three-star camped at Tennessee earlier this month, earning an offer after his performance and committing soon after.
Stallings becomes the first running back in Tennessee’s 2023 recruiting class. The physical bruising back gives the Vols a different style from their other running back targets in this recruiting cycle.
The three-star running back’s commitment gives Tennessee the No. 12 recruiting class according to 247sports and the No. 9 recruiting class according to On3.
