Tennessee makes final four for speedy, four-star receiver

The Vols could use this dynamic threat.

Lately it seems like all we’ve had to talk about on the recruiting trail has been offensive and defensive lineman. Jeremy Pruitt and his staff certainly are focused on beefing up both sides of the line of scrimmage, but they’re still going after a few offensive playmakers, too.

One of those offensive targets is Khafre Brown, who doubles as a receiver and a running back for his Charlotte, North Carolina area high school. Last night, Brown narrowed his college choices down to a final four.

Brown visited Tennessee last weekend, attending a Vols’ camp. The 5-11, 176 pound athlete is also a track star and teams are lining up to get their hands on some of that potentially game-breaking speed. But only Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and Michigan have a shot now.

Brown is a top 200 prospect in the 2019 class, according to 247 Sports. He is the 6th ranked player out of the state of North Carolina and the 26th ranked receiver in the country.

Tennessee currently has only one receiver committed to their 2019 class in four-star Ramel Keyton. Brown would bring a different skillset to the table for sure, but the Vols have some work to do. North Carolina remains the heavy favorite for Brown, landing seven out of seven crystal ball projections currently.

Let’s see if Tennessee can make up some ground over the summer months.
