Tennessee is the favorite in the SEC East largely thanks to a recruiting shift under head coach Butch Jones. Those plates continue to move in the direction of the Volunteers, as they landed a very talented wide receiver on Thursday.

CJ Cotman, a Clearwater, Florida native and attendee of Clearwater Central Catholic High School, committed to Tennessee via his personal Twitter account.

Cotman is a three-star recruit via 247Sports Composite Rankings and goes as high as four stars on Rivals. Butch Jones took to his Twitter account to express delight with Cotman’s choice as well.

The addition of Cotman boosts the Vols' class up to 10th in the nation and fifth in the SEC. He joins the likes of Maleik Gray, Eric Crosby, Breyon Gaddy among others as the Vols' vuture continues to shine bright in Knoxville. Cotman, 5-foot-11 and 180 pounds, ranks 37th at his position and 49th in the Sunshine State.
