Report: Former 4-star Tennessee signee Brant Lawless ends up with ACC squad instead
The Tennessee Volunteers recently lost 4-star 2018 DT signee Brant Lawless after he requested a release from his Letter of Intent.
Now, it appears Lawless has found a new school to play for this fall, according to a report from 247Sports.
Per the report, Lawless is now enrolled at North Carolina, where he’ll play along the Tar Heels’ defensive line starting this season.
According to the 247Sports composite, Lawless was the No. 22 defensive tackle in the class of 2018 and the No. 7 overall recruit from the state of Tennessee.
Lawless was a commit under former coach Butch Jones, so it’s no huge surprise that he wanted a change after Jeremy Pruitt was hired as head coach.
Now, Tennessee fans will have to watch him at UNC, while Pruitt works on rebuilding the Vols’ defensive line with players who are currently in Knoxville.
