Status With offers from dozens of power programs, Settle is one of the most wanted players in the nation. Settle named Clemson his leader in early June, but Tennessee and Alabama are right near the top with FSU, Virginia and Virginia Tech all well in the mix too.

Settle has the unteachable combination of size and athleticism that makes him one of the most coveted prospects in the nation. He will likely play from Day 1 wherever he goes and has the look of a future NFL player. The only minor concerns are if he can keep his weight in check and polishing up his technique and pad level. Those are issues that can – and should – be taken care of once in a collegiate program. He would be one of the best high school D-tackles the Vols have signed in decades and would give a potentially elite DT tandem if paired with Kahlil McKenzie.
