Tennessee prospect Kendal Vickers announces acceptance via Twitter

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Defensive lineman prospect Kendal Vickers, a late pickup by coach Butch Jones’ staff tweeted out a photo of an important document on Monday afternoon: A certificate of admission to the University of Tennessee.

Vickers, who was nudged out of South Carolina’s signing class because of academic concerns, had promised he would be ready to enroll at UT when the second summer session begins on July 8.

The photo appears to confirm that all is going according to plan.

An end from Havelock, N.C., Vickers also considered East Carolina and North Carolina before ultimately signing with the Gamecocks. He verbally committed to the Vols on May 24, but has not signed a National Letter of Intent.
