Tennessee beats out Alabama, Florida for 2016 offensive tackle recruit
Tennessee got itself some help at offensive tackle for 2016.
The Vols got a commitment from three-star offensive tackle Marcus Tatum out of Daytona Beach, Fla. Tatum chose UT over Florida and Alabama, announcing his decision via Twitter on Monday afternoon.
The 6-foot-6, 255-pounder is the third offensive lineman to commit to Tennessee for 2016.
Tatum officially visited Tennessee on Nov. 6. He was scheduled to visit Florida on Jan. 15 and Miami a week later on Jan. 22, but he’s apparently made up his mind already.
Tatum is the No. 44 offensive tackle in the 2016 class, according to 247Sports’ Composite rankings.
