Tennessee missed out on a five-star prospect on Thursday. Jordan Seaton, a five-star offensive tackle prospect, picked Colorado over Tennessee and several others. The 6-5, 287 pound prospect is out of the IMG Academy in Florida.
Seaton made the announcement live on FS1.
Per the 247Sports Composite, Seaton is the 15th ranked player in the class of 2024. He’s the top ranked offensive tackle in the country and the fourth ranked player out of the state of Florida.
“My favorite thing about that program is probably the head coach,” Seaton told 247Sports. “He’s a gold jacket. He knows what it looks like. As you can see with Shedeur he knows how to get you to the league.”
Seaton was the top remaining uncommitted prospect of the cycle.
Tennessee returns John Campbell and Gerald Mincey at both tackle spots for next year. However, losing out on Seaton is an obvious big blow for the future of the offensive line. Tennessee does still have four-star tackle Bennett Warren and four-star Max Anderson committed to the class of 2024.
