KNOXVILLE (AP) - Tennessee has signed junior-college offensive lineman Dontavius Blair, wide receiver Von Pearson and defensive lineman Owen Williams.

Their additions were announced Wednesday in a university release.

Blair, a consensus four-star recruit, was a two-year starter at Garden City (Kan.) Community College. Blair, who's 6-foot-8 and 300 pounds, could get an immediate opportunity on a Tennessee offensive line that must replace all five of its 2013 starters.

Pearson, a 6-3 consensus four-star prospect, caught 93 passes for 1,601 yards and 12 touchdowns this season for Feather River College in Quincy, Calif. Williams, who is 6-2 and 285 pounds, had seven sacks and 15 ½ tackles for loss at Butler (Kan.) Community College this season.
