Three-Star Running Back Commits To Tennessee

    by -

    Three-star athlete Will Stallings Jr. committed to Tennessee on his Twitter account Sunday afternoon.

    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.

    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.
