Instant help on the edge.

NCAA Football: Tennessee at Texas A&M Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee’s search for immediate help up front has paid off with a commitment from JUCO defensive end Jordan Allen. The three star pass rusher announced his intention to sign with the Vols tonight.

Allen is the second ranked weak side defensive end prospect in the JUCO ranks. He comes from the City College of San Francisco. Allen visited Knoxville last weekend.
