Watch: Tennessee receiver commit Ramel Keyton burns defender for touchdown at The Opening


Ramel Keyton Tennessee SBNation Recruiting

Four-star receiver Ramel Keyton has been committed to Tennessee since the middle of May, giving the Vols their only receiver of the 2019 class so far. The 6-3 receiver will rep the Vols at The Opening this weekend — one of the nation’s premier recruiting events.

He’s already turning heads. Watch below as Keyton throws the burners on and runs around this defensive back for the score.

Between blowing a kiss in mid-stride and staring down the defender after the score, it’s probably fair to say Keyton isn’t lacking on confidence.

Blowing by defenders isn’t exactly Keyton’s bread and butter, but he has enough speed to make you respect him deep, as you can see from the clip. That matches up pretty well with how SBNation’s Bud Elliott described him a couple of months ago.

There’s a lot to like about Keyton as a player. He is a legit 6’3, with the frame to play at over 200 pounds in college. Keyton is not a burner, but isn’t slow, and has a knack for coming down with the football thanks to a combination of good hands and body control. He is ranked the No. 168 player in the nation on the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Expect to hear plenty more from Keyton as the weekend’s festivities begin.
