Tennessee is adding another player — this time at a big time position of need. Kenneth George Jr. tweeted late on Saturday night that he had committed to Tennessee.
George is a JUCO cornerback recruit out of Louisiana. He held just one other FBS offer from Nebraska. However, Nebraska’s interest in George cooled late in the process. With limited options available, George delayed his decision. That seems to have paid off with an offer from Tennessee.
The 5-11, 190 pound corner played for Trinity Valley in Texas last season, totaling two interceptions and 27 tackles in 11 games played. He is currently unranked on 247 Sports and Rivals.
According to GoVols247, George plans on joining the Vols in May. He will be eligible immediately and Tennessee definitely needs him. The new coaching staff is currently trying to simply make their numbers work at cornerback. We’ll see if George can make an impact in the fall during camp.
