Jauan Jennings Commits to Tennessee

Randy Sartin-USA TODAY Sports

The Class of 2015 adds another commitment and the Vols remain an elite recruiting force under Butch Jones.

Butch Jones continues to make the state of Tennessee a priority, and for the second consecutive year he landed its best player.  Four-star athlete Jauan Jennings of Murfreesboro committed to the Vols today, pushing Tennessee's 2015 class into double digits and sending the Vols up to sixth place in 247's Composite Team Rankings.  It's early, but Tennessee again leads all SEC East programs in the team rankings now with 10 commitments and four four-stars.

Jennings is one of those four-stars, a 6'3" athlete who played quarterback for Blackman High School but many project to fit in at safety.  The Vols are young and growing in the secondary with plenty of talent at the sophomore and below level.

Jennings joins WR Preston Williams, DE Andrew Butcher, LB Cecil Cherry, and fellow Murfreesboro native Jack Jones at OT as the biggest early pieces of the 2015 class.  Butch Jones is doing an excellent job showing he can land far more than legacy kids, keeping the Vols in the hunt for another Top 5 national class in 2015 and recruiting at a championship level in hopes the on-field product will catch-up.  Soon.

Congrats to Jauan and the Vols!
