Tennessee was absolutely on fire this weekend as the Volunteers nabbed three more commits to their already pretty big class of 2018. They were able to get two more running backs in Lyn-J Dixon and Anthony Grant Jr. as well as a defensive tackle in Jamarcus Chatman.
Dixon was ranked as a four-star recruit while the others were ranked as three-star recruits in the class. They now have 15 total members of the class and that has catapulted them ahead of the likes of Clemson and Florida State who have top-10 classes right now. In fact, Tennessee now has a top-five class according to 247Sports and the No. 2 class in the SEC behind only LSU who sits at No. 3 nationally.
The class currently has a single five-star player in offensive tackle Cade Mays to go with 6 players ranked as four-star recruits and another 8 ranked as three-stars. They only trail Ohio State, Miami, LSU and Penn State in this year’s cycle of recruiting and there’s still more time to change that before the early signing period in December and again for National Signing Day in February.
