Four-star LB Aaron Willis announces commitment date

Another name to know.

NCAA Football: Florida at Tennessee Bryan Lynn-USA TODAY Sports

Tennessee is absolutely roaring on the recruiting trail. Seven commitments in the last eight days have the Volunteers sitting pretty with the third ranked class in America.

They’re not even close to being done either, trust us.

There are a few more names to pay attention to in the coming days. Four-star tackle Colby Smith is one to watch for on Monday night. Four-star quarterback Kaidon Salter is one to watch on May 10th. Joining Salter in announcing on May 10th will be four-star linebacker Aaron Willis.

The 6-0, 200 pound linebacker prospect announced his plans to commit over the weekend.

Willis recently named a top seven of Alabama, LSU, Texas, Maryland, Tennessee, Arizona State and Michigan. He’s the 112th ranked player in the nation, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings — the ninth ranked outside linebacker prospect. Willis comes out of Baltimore, Maryland.

Tennessee offered Willis over a year ago in January of 2019.

Tennessee earned four inside linebacker commitments in their 2020 class, replenishing a depth chart that saw a lot of attrition during the 2019 season. That work has continued in 2021 with the addition of five-star linebacker Terrence Lewis. The potential addition of Willis would give Tennessee their second top 125 prospect at the position for this cycle.

May 10th, this coming Sunday, will definitely be one to pay attention to.
