We’re still not sure what Tennessee is going to do in the 2021 cycle at the quarterback position, but a name for the 2022 class has already emerged. Braden Davis took a look at the Tennessee campus in Knoxville over the weekend — a place that he’s already familiar with.

Davis is the son of former Tennessee offensive lineman Antone Davis. Now he’s a top 100 overall prospect in the class of 2022. The four-star quarterback is the 87th overall prospect and the 5th ranked dual-threat quarterback in the class. He’s set to be one of the most sought after prospects in next year’s class, and Tennessee plans to be in the thick of things.

Davis holds offers from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, LSU and Texas A&M. He visited Clemson on Friday before heading to Knoxville. His recruitment has all the makings of a heavyweight fight until the end.

The Tennessee legacy prospect checks in at 6-4, 196 pounds. He’s been officially clocked running a 4.78 in the 40 yard dash. His father, Antone, held the ‘VFL Coordinator’ position at Tennessee from 2012-2017 after finishing his career in the NFL.

Davis included Tennessee in his top nine back in December. He picked up his Tennessee offer back in October of 2019.

Tennessee added five-star quarterback Harrison Bailey and three-star athlete Jimmy Holiday to the position during the 2020 cycle. They join sophomores J.T. Shrout and Brian Maurer, likely slotting in behind senior Jarrett Guarantano for the 2020 season.
