Butch Jones and the Tennessee Volunteers added another high-caliber player to their 2018 class on Wednesday.
Three-star tight end Jacob Warren, a local product from right in Knoxville, has committed to Tennessee. Warren announced his commitment on his personal Twitter account.
Warren is the son of former Tennessee offensive lineman James Warren, so this is a bit of a ‘legacy’ commit, if you will.
He’s listed as the 31st-ranked player in the state of Tennessee and the 38th-ranked tight end in the nation. He checks in at 6-foot-6, 211 pounds, so he’ll prove to be be a big-bodied target once he arrives on campus next fall. That should be helpful to whomever is under center for the Vols at that time as they are certainly looking to reload on offense with recent pickups at QB and O-Line.
Jacob Warren gives Tennessee 11 hard commits for 2018. He’s the sixth three-star player in the class, joining Jatavious Harris, Michael Penix, Ollie Lane, Shatar McClay and Jaylon Reed. He’s the fourth commit that the Vols have gotten in the month of May, joining Adrian Martinez, Brent Lawless and Brendon Harris.
