Vols Land 5-Star Edge-Rusher Over Alabama & Auburn

by | Apr 26, 2020 | Reporting

When 5-star edge-rusher Dylan Brooks exited Neyland Stadium to conclude his visit to Tennessee, most fans of the Vols believed that their chances at landing him were practically zero. During his visit, Brooks witnessed one of the worst losses in College Football history — he was in Neyland Stadium when Georgia State defeated the Volunteers.

Hope in Knoxville was dwindling, and landing Brooks was not even a thought in most Vol Fans’ head. Their main concern was salvaging the season, and avoiding a three or four win season. However, Brooks decided to keep an open mind, and after the Vols’ pulled off a miraculous finish to their season — winning their final 6 games — Brooks ultimately decided to join Tennessee’s 2021 recruiting class.

Brooks is the No.1 player in the State of Alabama, No.1 player at his position, and No.18 player in the entire country. With his extremely high rating, Alabama and Auburn were heavily pursuing the instate prospect, in addition to out of state schools such as Florida, Georgia, and Clemson pushing to land the 6’5’’ 220-pound edge-rusher. Tennessee defensive coordinator Derrick Ansley was Brooks’ lead recruiter to Tennessee, as he beat out Alabama’s Holmon Wiggins and Auburn’s Kodi Burns for the elite 5-star.

During his junior season, Brooks earned 7 sacks, 16 tackles for losses, and 65 total tackles. The year prior, in 2018, Brooks earned 9 sacks, 17 tackles for losses, and 55 total tackles.

Tennessee began to trend for Brooks early on Sunday morning, earning a flood of crystal balls for the 5-star, including ones from Brooks’ lead recruiter, Tim Watt, and recruiting guru Steve Wiltfong. Brooks then announced his commitment to Tennessee later in the day.

With the addition of Brooks, Tennessee surged into 13th place in the 247Sports recruiting ranks, and they may surge even higher with their newly found momentum from landing the No.1 player in the State of Alabama over the Crimson Tide and Tigers.

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.
