Tennessee Makes Top Group For Top 100 Junior Receiver

    by -

    Top 100 receiver Tyseer Denmark released his top 12 on Friday including the Vols along with a number of the top programs across the country.

    Alabama, Notre Dame, Michigan, Ohio State, Oregon, Penn State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Texas and USC joined Tennessee in Denmark’s top 12.

    The 5-foot-11 Philadelphia native is a member of the class of 2024 and is just now entering his junior season of high school.

    Denmark is one of the top receivers in his class, ranking as the No. 78 player and No. 13 receiver in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The short receiver ranks as the No. 2 player in the state of Pennsylvania and the Vols will have to beat out Big 10 and national powers to land Denmark’s services.

    Tennessee landed its second commit of the 2024 recruiting class earlier this weekend when three-star Chattanooga native Carson Gentle committed to Josh Heupel and his staff.

    The defensive lineman ranks as the No. 7 player in the state of Tennessee according to 247sports.

    Gentle joined five-star tight end/defensive end Jonathan Echols as the first members of Tennessee’s 2024 recruiting class. Echols is a Georgia native but plays his prep ball at IMG Academy in Florida.

    The two commits are good to give Tennessee the No. 8 class in the early stages of the 2024 recruiting cycle.

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.
