Madison ranks as the nation’s No. 177 player and No. 29 receiver according to the 247sports composite rankings. The Fort Lauderdale native and St. Thomas Aquinas standout ranks as the No. 30 player in the state of Florida.
The 6-foot-3 receiver is one of the top receiver targets in Tennessee’s 2023 recruiting class but is hardly its only option at the position.

Madison is still in the early stages of his recruitment and hasn’t been active taking visits during the first half of his junior year of high school. The tall receiver did visit instate Florida State for the Seminoles matchup against Clemson.
As Tennessee begins hosting junior days this month, the Vols are looking to get Madison on campus to become a major player in his recruitment.
The Vols 2024 recruiting class currently contains just three commits but none are receivers. Four-star South Carolina receiver Mazeo Bennett committed to Tennessee in the fall before backing off his commitment last month.
Four-star athlete Jonathan Echols, four-star corner Kaleb Beasley and three-star defensive end Carson Gentle are Tennessee’s only three commits and make up the nation’s No. 13 recruiting class according to the 247sports team rankings.
