Four-star wide receiver Jordan Young (6-foot-2, 185 pounds) announced his commitment to Tennessee on Friday via Twitter.

The Vols offered Young a scholarship on Sunday near the end of his official visit, which was his first offer from a Power-5 conference team. Several other programs have since shown interest in him, but the wide receiver claimed he had already made his decision following the visit.

“My mind’s made up on Tennessee,” Young told 247Sports. “Tennessee, it was one of the first ones to reach out to me. The coaching staff was great.

“Once I went down there and saw the campus for myself, the players, the coaching staff, the facilities, I definitely fell in love with it. I definitely wanted to commit.”

Young chose Tennessee over offers from Coastal Carolina, Valdosta State and West Virginia State. He also received recent interest from Auburn, Florida, Florida State, Illinois and Virginia, according to SBNation.

Young ranks as the No. 65 wide receiver and No. 370 overall prospect for the 2018 national recruiting cycle, according to the 247Sports Composite ranking.

During his senior season, the Conyers native recorded 66 receptions for 1,562 yards and 17 touchdowns, earning Second-Team All-Georgia honors.
