McBride, a Texas native, de-committed from Memphis earlier on Tuesday before quickly pledging allegiance to coach Butch Jones and the Volunteers.
According to 247Sports, McBride is the No. 29 dual-threat quarterback in the class of 2017 and the No. 184 overall recruit from the state of Texas.
Sports betting in Tennessee officially launched on November 1, 2020, and many of the largest sportsbooks are live and operating in the volunteer state. Tennessee is only one of a handful of SEC football states with legalized sports betting.
