Abernathy named Tennessee, Georgia, Alabama and Ohio State his favorites in early July. Committed to Tennessee on Friday, October 10 and signed drama-free on National Signing Day.

Abernathy is a high priority for a UT coaching staff looking for size and much more speed in the defensive backfield.

He’s a pretty complete package as a recruit – he’s got great size for a cornerback, enough speed that he also stars as a running back on offense and is a high character prospect who is already comfortable with Jones and much of the staff.
