Tennessee is on the rise with four-star receiver Arian Smith out of Lakeland, Florida, according to a recent article from Volquest.com. The 6-1, 170 receiver prospect said in an interview that the Vols have risen into his top six schools, thanks to their need at the position, the city and assistant coach Tee Martin.
“I enjoyed everything,” Smith told Volquest. “I am surprised. They have risen into my top 6.”
Smith is considered a four-star prospect, according to the 247 Sports Composite Rankings. He is the 185th overall player in the class and the 35th rated receiver. Smith is attractive due to his game-changing speed. In fact, his offer from Tennessee includes a spot on the Vols’ track team. Smith has reportedly been clock in the 4.4s in the 40 yard dash at various camps.
Tennessee has an obvious need at receiver with four set to graduate after this season. The Volunteers currently don’t have a commitment at the position in their 2020 class, either.
Smith picked up his Tennessee offer back in May of 2018. He spent Thursday and Friday of this week in Knoxville, getting his first look at the Tennessee campus.
