Just one day after defensive end Kori Roberson committed to the Oklahoma Sooners, Jeremy Pruitt and Tennessee came calling with an offer. Roberson got an offer from Oklahoma earlier this month and attended a junior day event on campus this past weekend. He committed shortly after.
Now he holds an offer from Tennessee, which he announced yesterday on Twitter.

Tennessee is currently the only SEC school to offer Roberson. The 6-3, 255 pound defensive end is flying under the radar as a three star prospect currently. He holds just three power five offers currently, but the word seems to be getting out.
Roberson registered 5.5 sacks last season for Manvel High School in Texas. He would fit somewhere on the edge for Tennessee as they look to keep adding pass rushers to the equation.
Roberson will be an interesting follow over the summer. With Oklahoma, Tennessee and Arizona now after him, you would have to think other power five schools will come calling soon.
