Tennessee adds Australian punter to 2022 recruiting class
There has been a late addition to Tennessee’s 2022 recruiting. Jackson Ross, a punter from Melbourne, Australia, committed to the Volunteers on Friday.
Ross made the announcement via his Twitter account:
I am honoured to announce that I have committed to study and play football at The University of Tennessee on full scholarship.

Out of ProKick Australia, which helps train Australian athletes to play American football, Ross is listed at 6-3, 190 pounds on 247Sports.
Tennessee returns senior starting punter Paxton Brooks for 2022. Ross will likely compete for the starting job in 2023.
Tennessee online sports betting 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.
