JUCO DT Ben Bradley commits to Tennessee

It started with QB Riley Ferguson and LB Zach Barnes yesterday. Then we had some noise about DB Khambrel Garland, though still nothing official. And now the Vols have added a 6'3" 310 lbs defensive tackle to the 2013 mix:

Bradley is a former high school teammate of 2012 signee Jason Croom from Norcross, Georgia, and played at the same community college as Cordarrelle Patterson and current Vol commit LB De'Vondre Campbell. He signed with West Virginia in 2011 before deferring to the junior college route.

If you're scoring at home, that's a dozen commitments for the Class of 2013, a baker's dozen if Garland comes on board. Remember the last two summers when we all wondered why the Vols only had two or three commitments at this point? Derek Dooley is clearly more out in front of things for 2013, a strong sign that the program is moving in the right direction. The Vols continue to add depth at key positions through the junior college ranks, going bigger up front with players like Bradley and Daniel McCullers. This class is coming together nicely - let's hope the Vols have a good season behind them to fan the flame when February rolls around.
