Tennessee Defense Gets Boost With Two New Commits

Videos by OutKick

In the last three days alone, Tennessee has landed a couple of nice recruits on the defensive side of the football.

On Thursday, the Volunteers received a commitment from Venson Sneed, a 6-foot-5 defensive end out of Florida. That followed Wednesday’s commitment from Elijah Herring, a 6-2 outside linebacker from Murfreesboro.

Sneed announced his decision on Twitter, choosing the Vols over Kentucky, Indiana, West Virginia, South Florida, Iowa State and several others.

Herring also promoted his decision via social media, becoming the first prospect to commit with new coach Josh Heupel at the helm.

This is all good news for Tennessee, which finished 3-7 last season under Jeremy Pruitt and which clearly needs some depth on defense.

The Volunteers’ Orange and White spring game will be held Saturday, April 24. Heupel, of course, is in the midst of putting them through 15 practices first.
