Tulane receiver transfer Chris Brazzell II committed to Tennessee football on Thursday evening, 247sports Matt Zenitz first reported. The redshirt freshman was one of the top receivers in the transfer portal and chose the Vols over a top group including Colorado, Utah and Washington.

Brazzell had a breakout redshirt freshman season for the Green Wave this fall, catching 44 passes for 711 yards and five touchdowns. The 6-foot-5 receiver recorded a pair of 100-yard games in 2023 eclipsing the mark in wins over Memphis and Florida Atlantic.

The Midland, Texas native entered the transfer portal shortly after Tulane coach Willie Fritz left New Orleans to become Houston’s newest head coach.

Brazzell earned a 76.3 PFF grade in 616 snaps during the 2023 season. In comparison, Bru McCoy graded out as Tennessee’s best receiver last year according to PFF with a 76.3 grade.

The highly touted receiver ranks as a four-star and the No. 57 transfer of this cycle according to the 247sports transfer rankings. Brazzell also ranks as the 11th best receiver in the transfer portal.

The deep threat joins a Tennessee receiver room that returns a number of top contributors from last season. Ramel Keyton is out of eligibility but Squirrel White, Dont’e Thornton, Chas Nimrod and Kaleb Webb are all back. Senior receiver Bru McCoy has yet to announce plans for his football future after suffering a season-ending injury in the Vols’ win over South Carolina.

While Tennessee returns a number of contributors from its receiver room, the Vols were missing a true No. 1 option last season. Brazzell showed the ability to be just that in his breakout season at Tulane.

Brazzell becomes Tennessee’s fourth transfer portal addition of the offseason, joining Notre Dame tight end Holden Staes, Oregon State corner Jermod McCoy and MTSU safety Jakobe Thomas.
