TENNESSEE GETS GEORGIA PEACH

Tennessee  got  another commitment Friday, Nigel Mitchell-Thornton from Stone Mountain Georgia.  Thornton is a 6'-2" 225lb. Middle linebacker, Thornton rated a 3* player by Scout.Com. is from Stepheson High School.

Burke Hayes of scout.com reports that Thornton is rated as one of the top Linebackers in the state of Georgia. He has very good size, is aggressive and plays hard.  He has put on some weight, but still has range, so he should stay at line backer.  Runs well and is not a match - up liability Very poised and plays through adversity.

Thornton had 106 tackles, 6 sacks, and 12 tackles for loss last season. Thornton picked Tennessee over Michigan, Stanford, Georgia Tech, Miss St., Marshall, North Carolina State, and Oklahoma State.  Welcome to Tennessee Nigel.  More News To Come,  Go Vols !! Old Smokey
