Four-Star Receiver Announces Visit Plan To Tennessee

    by -

    Class of 2024 receiver Debron Gatling is visiting Tennessee this week, Gatling announced on his Twitter Tuesday.

    Entering his junior year of high school, Gatling is still in the early stages of his recruitment. The Vols getting Gatling to campus for a visit ahead of his high school season is a good early sign in the four-star recruitment.

    Gatling ranks as the No. 259 player and No. 38 receiver in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The Alpharetta native plays his prep football at Milton High School and ranks as the 36th best player in the state of Georgia in the 2024 recruiting cycle.

    Gatling has taken a number of visits this summer including Alabama, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Ohio State.

    The Georgia native holds 38 offers after catching 36 passes for 705 yards and 11 touchdowns in his sophomore season.

    Tennessee currently has two commits in its 2024 recruiting class. Five-star athlete Jonathan Echols committed to Josh Heupel and his staff on July 4, and three-star Chattanooga native Carson Gentle committed to Tennessee last weekend.

    The two-commits give Tennessee the No. 9 recruiting class in the 2024 cycle according to 247sports. The Vols will also host four-star receiver Mazeo Bennett for an unofficial visit this weekend.

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.

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.
