Tennessee landed junior college defensive lineman Jamal Wallace on Sunday afternoon. Wallace’s commitment came in the form of a post on social media.

“Blessed and want to thank God for everything with that being said I will be committing to [Tennessee Football],” Wallace wrote in a post on X, tagging head coach Josh Heupel and defensive line coach Rodney Garner.

The Kansas City native was in Knoxville this past week and decided to go ahead and make his commitment official on Sunday.

Wallace just wrapped up his sophomore year at Sierra C.C. in Rocklin, California, and racked up 39 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles while playing in 10 games.

The 6-foot-2, 302-pound defensive lineman received a good handful of offers including programs such as Utah State and Houston. Wallace took official visits to North Texas and South Florida before his trip to Knoxville.

Wallace played wide receiver and defensive back in high school but has found his stride on the defensive line with Sierra College. Wallace’s power and finesse at the position can be seen in the clip below.

Jamal Wallace makes for the 20th commitment in Tennessee’s 2024 recruiting class. Wallace is the fourth defensive line commit in the Vols’ class alongside three-star Kellen Lindstrom, three-star Jeremias Heard, and three-star Carson Gentle. 247 Sports currently has Tennessee’s 2024 class at No. 14 in the nation and No. 8 in the SEC (including Texas and Oklahoma, who are set to officially join the conference before the next football season).

Wallace’s commitment to Tennessee also comes just one day after former Tennessee defensive lineman Tyler Baron announced his commitment to Ole Miss.
