For the second time in as many days, Tennessee has picked up a football commitment on the defensive side of the ball. Following Elijah Herring on Wednesday, Venson Sneed joined the class today.

Sneed chose the Volunteers over offers from Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia, South Florida, Iowa State and a handful of others. The 6-5, 253 pound defensive end is a three-star prospect, ranking 591st in the country, per the 247Sports Composite. Sneed is out of Winter Park, Florida.
The Volunteers are one of Sneed’s newest offers. Josh Heupel and the Tennessee staff sent out the offer on February 19th, now less than two months later, Sneed is a Volunteer. It’s the second front seven prospect that Tennessee has landed this week — a clear area of need where the Vols need depth.
Sneed fits as a traditional hand-in-the-dirt defensive end, something that Tennessee is likely to transition back to under defensive coordinator Tim Banks. The Vols are going to roll with a new look at defensive end this season, leaning on Roman Harrison and Tyler Baron. Restocking that group is a must during this recruiting cycle, and they’ve taken the first step towards that this morning.
