In just over a week's time, Tennessee has added another commitment to their 2015 recruiting class. This time around, the commit comes from a hometown recruit: '15 ATH Jocquez Bruce. The 5'10, 165-pound Bruce gave his verbal pledge to the Volunteers on Tuesday afternoon via Twitter, following an impressive showing at Tennessee's camp this past weekend, where Bruce received his offer. With the ability to play multiple positions at the next level, Bruce worked out at several different spots, including cornerback, running back, and slot receiver.
Bruce supposedly ran a 4.5 in the 40-yard dash at the Tennessee camp, showing off his excellent speed. Volunteers head coach Butch Jones plans on using Bruce as slot receiver over any other position, and is ranked as the nation's 74th best athlete and the 28th best prospect from the state of Tennessee in the 247Sports Composite for the 2015 class. Bruce held offers from teams such as Memphis, Middle Tennessee State, and was also receiving interest from schools such as Alabama, Cincinnati, and Duke. The Crystal Ball experts all predicted that Bruce was headed to Knoxville to play his college football, so it appears this was no surprise.
The three-star is the latest to commit, with '15 QB Quinten Dormady being the most recent to commit before Bruce.
