Tennessee added its 28th commitment Tuesday night, when wide receiver Joshua Palmer announced he would be heading to Knoxville.

Palmer is a 3-star receiver from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Ft. Lauderdale, Fla., ranked 0.8502 by the 247Sports Composite. Palmer’s other top offers included UCLA, Penn State, Michigan, Pitt and NC State.

Palmer is the fourth wide receiver for the Vols in the 2017 class, joining Princeton Fant, Jacquez Jones and Jordan Murphy. In addition to senior Josh Smith and junior Jauan Jennings, the Vols will turn to several young players to help at wideout in 2017. Just who that will be remains to be seen, but it stands to reason players will have a chance to compete for snaps during spring practice and training camp.

Tennessee’s recruiting class stands at sixth in the SEC and 11th in the country, according to 247Sports.

Congratulations to Joshua and his family!
