Tennessee adds to top recruiting class with commitment from big-time North Carolina athlete
Tennessee is one team that may not want quarantining from the COVID-19 to end, because the Vols have been on a recruiting tear for the class of 2021.
Four-star athlete Kaemen Marley (Ramseur, N.C.) added to the Vols top-ranked recruiting class Wednesday night. The 6-foot-2, 206-pound do-it-all is ranked as the nation’s No. 146 overall player, the No. 5 overall athlete and North Carolina’s No. 8 overall prospect, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
The top athlete committed to the Vols over offers from North Carolina, NC State, Kentucky and Ohio State, among others. That’s a big coup for Jeremy Pruitt and the Vols, as Marley could excel at a number of positions. He could be a big weapon at receiver, or he could play in the secondary.
Tennessee offered February 1, and despite not visiting yet, Marley committed to the Vols via Twitter.
