Micah Abernathy committed to the Vols out of Greater Atlanta Christian School in Norcross, Georgia, where he played primarily running back. Abernathy put on a show at the Under Armour All-American Game practices, showing off tremendous athleticism to make up for inexperience playing cornerback. Despite being matched up against the elite high school wide receivers in the nation, he didn't look out of place, making as more big plays than occasional mistakes. With next year's secondary largely set, Abernathy may have the luxury of a redshirt year to learn the nuances of the position instead of having to immediately contribute.
