Tennessee has picked up its second transfer commitment of the day, adding Omarr Norman-Lott — a defensive tackle from Arizona State.
The 6-3, 290 pound defender had 44 tackles and seven tackles for loss over the last two seasons for the Sun Devils. He was a starter for Arizona State, but injury issues plagued his 2022 season. He was set to lead the defensive line in 2023, but opted to search for a new home following the coaching change.
Norman-Lott has two seasons of eligibility remaining.
Over the weekend, Tennessee hosted Norman-Lott on a visit. Defensive line coach Rodney Garner also spent some time with him out west. Today, that work pays off.
Per 247Sports, Norman-Lott was a four-star recruit in the 2020 class. He was the 355th ranked player during that cycle, coming out of California.
Tennessee is set to return Omari Thomas, Da’Jon Terry, Elijah Simmons, Tyre West, Dominic Bailey and a handful of others at defensive tackle. Adding Norman-Lott here adds some needed experience, however, rounding out the depth chart nicely.
Per 247Sports, Norman-Lott is expected to join the team quickly, perhaps as early as this weekend.
