Volunteers recruiting momentum rolls into June with two new commits

Anthony Harris

Jeremy Pruitt had another solid week on the recruiting trail. The Volunteers added two more commitments to their 2019 class, giving them a total of 10 at this point.

Here is a look at the two newest Tennessee commitments for the 2019 class.

Safety Anthony Harris

The particulars: Harris (6-feet-1, 171 pounds) is a four-star prospect from Havelock, (NC) High. He committed to Tennessee on June 8, 2018.

The skinny: Harris, who is considered to be a top-15 safety in the country, is also a top-175 overall talent nationally in the 2019 class. Harris had offers from Clemson, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina and others before committing to the Volunteers.

Safety Aaron Beasley

The particulars: Beasley (6-feet, 220 pounds) is a three-star prospect from Franklin, (GA) Heard County. He committed to Tennessee on June 10, 2018.

The skinny: Beasley became the second safety prospect to commit to Tennessee in as many days, joining Harris. Beasley had offers from numerous top programs, including Auburn, Florida, Florida State and Miami.

These two commitments keep Tennessee hot on the recruiting trail.

In fact, of Tennessee’s 10 current commitments for the 2019 class, six of them have happened since May 1, 2018.

What started this hot streak for the Volunteers?

When five-star Wanya Morris committed to Tennessee back on May 1, 2018, he was only the fifth commitments for Pruitt and his staff in Knoxville, but it appears his commitment caused a classic recruiting domino effect.

Since the commitment of Morris, Tennessee has added four-star commitments in Harris as well as four-star wide receiver Ramel Keyton, (Marietta, GA)

The Volunteers have also added a commitment in the past month from linebacker Lakia Henry, who is considered to be a top-five junior college talent nationally in the 2019 class.

Many will tell you that prior to May 1, there was starting to be concern surrounding Tennessee’s 2019 class, but with six commitments in the past five weeks, those concerns have been put aside for the time being.

The additions have moved the Volunteers up to a top-15 class nationally according to 247sports.com, which is a far cry from where they were just a few weeks prior.
