Now that the 2021 recruiting cycle is (mostly) behind us, coaches around the country are turning their attention to the class of 2022 recruits.

Many of the top players in the class are narrowing down their lists of schools, and on Tuesday, 4-star OLB Keaten Wade trimmed his list to 9 schools.

As you can see, the Tennessee native (who plays for Summit High School in Spring Hill) has 3 SEC programs — LSU, Kentucky and Ole Miss — included:

Those 3 SEC schools will compete with Arizona State, West Virginia, Louisville, Virginia, Michigan and USC for Wade’s services in 2022 and beyond.

Per the 247Sports composite rankings, Wade is the No. 17 outside linebacker in the class of 2022 and the No. 4 overall recruit from the state of Tennessee.
