COLLEGE FOOTBALL: OCT 05 Georgia at Tennessee

The Tennessee Volunteers picked up a trio of commits from Whitehaven High School in Memphis Tuesday night.

The Vols secured commitments from 4-star linebackers Bryson Eason and Martavius French. That wasn’t all though, as they picked up yet another linebacker from the school in outside linebacker Tamarion McDonald. McDonald, who’d previously been committed to the Mississippi State Bulldogs, tweeted out his intentions to commit to Tennessee on Twitter.

Standing 6-foot-1 and weighing 218 lbs., McDonald rates as a three-star recruit on 247Sports’ Composite Rankings. He’s listed 567th in the nation, 34th at outside linebacker and 19th in the state of Tennessee. He is the fourth Top 20 recruit from the state of Tennessee to commit to the Vols, joining Eason, French and Keshawn Lawrence of Nashville.

Tennessee’s recruiting class now ranks 20th in the nation and eighth in the SEC after the trio of commitments they collected Tuesday night.
