Chas Nimrod, 3-star WR from Arkansas, committed to Tennessee Thursday afternoon.
“It felt right,” Nimrod said, via 247.
Nimrod visited Tennessee this past weekend and pledged to the Vols less than a week later despite holding offers from Utah State, Michigan and Arkansas, among others. He cited his relationship with the Vols’ coaches and more specifically, Tennessee WRs coach Kodi Burns’ demeanor.
“He was super nice and chill,” Nimrod said.
Nimrod measures in at 6-3, 182 and ranks as the No. 6 overall player in Arkansas according to the 247 composite rankings. Also via 247, he’s a track athlete and participates in the 100 meter, 200 meter and triple jump events. He posted a 11.28 100-meter time, a 22.08 200-meter time and a 44-9 triple-jump mark.
The Vols got off to a bit of a slow start this cycle under Heupel, but they’ve come on strong in recent weeks adding eight commitments since July 1st. 4-star OL Addison Nichols from Norcross, GA, who committed Monday, headlines the class to this point.
