Tennessee Makes SEC Heavy Top Six For Offensive Lineman

    by -

    Alabama offensive tackle Vysen Lang released a top six including Tennessee on his Twitter Tuesday afternoon.

    Lang’s top group has a heavy SEC flavor, including Arkansas, Auburn, Georgia, LSU and Texas along with the Volunteers.

    The massive 6-foot-5, 330-pound offensive tackle ranks as a three-star recruit and the No. 576 player in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The Pike Road, Alabama native ranks as the No. 25 player in the state and the 47th best offensive tackle in the country.

    Lang unofficially visited Knoxville in March after Josh Heupel and his staff offered him a scholarship in February and came back in June for an official visit

    The three-star lineman has also taken one unofficial visit to Auburn, LSU and Texas in 2022. Lang visited Arkansas twice unofficially and already has an official visit for the fall scheduled.
