Tennessee lands second 5-star prospect this week as nation's No. 1 outside linebacker Terrence Lewis commits to Vols
Tennessee is well on its way to building one of the best recruiting classes in program history and certainly the best of the Jeremy Pruitt era as the Volunteers have just added another five-star prospect to the program’s current recruiting class.
The Vols landed five-star defensive end/pass rusher Dylan Brooks over the weekend and now have landed five-star linebacker Terrence Lewis to the program’s 2021 recruiting class. The 6-foot-1, 200-pound Lewis is rated as the nation’s No. 1 outside linebacker and the No. 10 overall prospect in the nation according to 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Lewis helped Miami Northwestern win the 5A Florida state title in 2019, where he registered 207 tackles and 24 sacks the last two seasons. Lewis is scheduled to finish his high school career at Chaminade-Madonna Prep.
It may interest Tennessee fans to know the Hollywood, Fla., native was once committed to Florida. Lewis decommitted from Dan Mullen’s program back on April 13, 2019. That means Tennessee has now landed two former Gator commits this week, as four-star cornerback Kamar Wilcoxson was also previously committed to the Gators.
Lewis’ commitment gives Tennessee its fifth elite commitment in five days as Brooks, Wilcoxson and four-star receiver Julian Nixon have elevated the Vols up the recruiting rankings. Following Lewis’ pledge to join Tennessee, the Vols’ 2021 recruiting class has jumped Clemson and is now ranked as the nation’s No. 4 class.
Based on his junior season highlights, Lewis is a matchup nightmare off the edge at the high school level. It’s easy to see why he’s rated as one of the best defenders in the nation after viewing his highlight reel.
