Three-star cornerback Tanner Ingle announced Monday night on Twitter that he has committed to Tennessee.

In his tweet, Ingle simply wrote “COMMITTED” with a photo of himself featured in a Volunteers-themed graphic.

Ingle, who attends Orlando (Fla.) Dr. Phillips, chose Tennessee over at least 35 other offers. Boston College, Stanford, Syracuse and Virginia Tech appeared to be his favorites until the Vols recently offered him on June 11.

Ingle, who is 5-foot-10 and 185 pounds, also has offers from, among others, Mississippi State, Missouri, North Carolina, Vanderbilt, Washington State and Wisconsin.

Ingle’s commitment gives Tennessee its 13th of the class, including at least its second cornerback following three-star prospect Brandon Cross, who committed exactly one week earlier. Cross also is from Orlando.

Three-star athlete Shatar McClay, another Tennessee commitment, also could be a cornerback at the collegiate level.

Tennessee’s class remains ranked by 247Sports as No. 9 in the nation and No. 2 in the SEC after Ingle’s commitment.

According to 247Sports Composite, Ingle is a top-110 cornerback in the nation and top-175 prospect in Florida. That ranking, though, could change at some point as he does not have any rankings yet from 247Sports itself.

As a junior last season, Ingle had 76 tackles and two interceptions. He had 72 tackles and six interceptions a year earlier in 2015.

Tennessee defensive backs coach Charlton Warren is his primary recruiter for the Vols.
