While Kaemen Marley may not be the highest-rated prospect committed to Jeremy Pruitt’s program, Tennessee may have just landed its best commit yet of the current 2021 recruiting cycle.

If you missed the news on Wednesday evening, Tennessee’s latest commitment came from the 6-foot-2, 206-pound North Carolina native. Marley is rated as a four-star prospect, the nation’s No. 5 athlete and the No. 146 overall prospect in the nation by 247Sports Composite Rankings.

Marley committed to Tennessee over scholarship offers from Kentucky, Ohio State, Penn State, North Carolina, and Wisconsin, among others.

Following his decision to pledge to the Volunteers, Rivals national recruiting analyst Mike Farrell offered up his interesting take on Tennessee’s latest commit.

“Vols just added arguably the best piece of their 2021 class so far in my opinion. Kid can do it all,” Farrell said of Marley.

Considering all the elite talent currently committed to Tennesee, that’s quite the compliment from one of Rivals’ main recruiting evaluators.

If you haven’t yet seen Marley’s junior season highlight reel, check out some of the plays he made last season for Eastern Randolph High School. Based on his level of play, he seems to be the biggest and fastest player on the field every time he hits the high school gridiron.
