Top linebacker commits to Vols


KNOXVILLE (WATE) - Butch Jones has added a much-needed linebacker to his 2014 recruiting class.

Four-star prospect Gavin Bryant of Jackson, Alabama committed to play at Tennessee on Monday, according to

"I didn't want to leave the state but the schools that I wanted that was in-state was kind of holding back on me," Bryant told InsideTennessee. "Tennessee wasn't holding back. They gave me the shot, and I think it was a big shot out of all the rest of them that I had. So, I went on campus at Tennessee and saw the depth chart. They want like four linebackers. I have a chance to play and step-up and start."

The 6-2, 235-pound linebacker chose the Vols over Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Clemson, Miami (Fla.) and South Carolina.
