Tennessee Among Top Four Schools For 4-Star Christian Veilleux

by | Apr 5, 2020 | Reporting

Tennessee’s coaching staff has been quickly racking up momentum on the recruiting trail over the last week. The Vols were able to land a commitment from Jaylen Wight, a speedy running back from North Carolina, on March 30th and then landed Walker Merrill, an in-state wide receiver with offers from LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn and others, the following day. Tennessee received even more encouraging news on Sunday evening, when 4-star quarterback Christian Veilleux announced he had trimmed his list of potential college destinations to four teams, Penn State, Clemson, Duke, and Tennessee.

247Sports Composite rates Veilleux as the 15th best pro-style quarterback in the nation, 13th best player in the state of Maryland, and gave him a score of 0.9022, which is good enough for a 4-star rating. Standing at 6’3’’ and weighing in at 201 pounds, Veilleux has the frame to be a successful quarterback in the SEC, but he is not the typical stereotype of a pocket-passer. He has the ability to improvise with his legs when he is under the pressure of a pass rush, but at the same time, his accuracy with short passes is extremely lethal for defenses.

Tennessee quarterback coach Chris Weinke is Veilleux’s primary recruiter to the Vols, while offensive coordinator Jim Chaney serves as his secondary recruiter. Weinke was also the primary recruiter for current Tennessee quarterbacks Harrison Bailey and Brian Maurer.

Some of the top schools that offered Veilleux but missed out on making the cut included LSU, Michigan, Virginia Tech, West Virginia, Kentucky, and South Carolina. As a native of Potomac, Maryland, he attends “The Bullis School,” a K-12 private school on the outskirts of Washington D.C.

No timetable is known for Veilleux’s final decision, but as one of the top quarterbacks for the class of 2021, he is likely under no pressure to announce a commitment in the near future. However, nevertheless, Chris Weinke and the Vols will still likely push Veilleux to make a commitment to Tennessee to bring even more talent into his quarterback room. While Penn State, Clemson, and Duke are going to be tough competition to beat out, the Vols could continue to surprise on the recruiting trail by landing Veilleux.

Bat Flip Tennessee Vols Baseball Show – March 24,2021

Ninth-ranked Tennessee jumped on EKU early and cruised to a 13-5 win at Lindsey Nelson Stadium that didn’t do anything to halt the Vols’ momentum heading into a big weekend series against 15th-ranked LSU.

Home runs from junior third baseman Trey Lipscomb and sophomore shortstop Cortland Lawson highlighted a seven-run fifth inning that gave Tennessee a 13-2 cushion and the ability to mix in even more reserves down the stretch.
