Four-star Cameron Seldon committed to Tennessee Thursday afternoon, announcing his decision live on CBS Sports HQ.
Seldon chose Josh Heupel and the Vols over Penn State and Maryland and becomes the highest ranked receiver commit in Tennessee’s 2023 recruiting class.
The Heathsville, Virginia receiver ranks as the No. 104 player in the country and No. 2 player in the state of Virginia according to the 247sports composite rankings. Seldon becomes Tennessee’s sixth blue-chip commit and fourth top 115 commit in the 2023 recruiting cycle.
Landing Seldon was paramount for Heupel, receiver’s coach Kelsey Pope and the rest of Tennessee’s staff. The Vols missed out on top receiver targets Kyler Kasper and Carnell Tate making Seldon the highest rated receiver left on their recruiting board.

Seldon’s commitment boosts Tennessee from the nation’s No. 11 to the No. 7 recruiting class in the country according to the 247sports team rankings. The four-star recruit is the Vols’ 15th commit and moves their class past Alabama and Georgia in the rankings.
Tennessee’s class could move up even higher by the end of the week. Four-star offensive tackle Sham Umarov is announcing his college decision Friday and three-star Georgia linebacker Jalen Smith is announcing his college decision Sunday.
The slow trickle of recruiting announcements continues into next week when four-star offensive tackle Lucas Simmons will decide between Florida, Florida State, Southern Cal and Tennessee.
July has been a busy recruiting month for Tennessee. The Vols have now landed three commits in the 2023 cycle and their first commit in the 2024 cycle.
