At start of ‘Foundation Week,’ Vols add juco WR commitment Eric Lauderdale

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Junior college receiver Eric Lauderdale became the 19th verbal commitment in Tennessee’s 2014 class on Sunday night.

Lauderdale, a Georgia native who went to California for junior college, is a consensus four-star prospect.

The Vols now have as many as five receivers in the 2014 class, although some of those players could end up at other spots. If there is no attrition or other adjustments (an increasingly unlikely assumption), there will be 16 scholarship wide receivers in camp a year from now.

What’s Foundation Week? Expect to see plenty of tweets about it, and perhaps some pictures of bricks. Essentially the Vols plan to have many current commitments and a slew of top targets in town this weekend for the final camps of the summer. (Check out partners at GoVols247 for more on the visitors). Saturday or Sunday will be #FoundationDay.

Here’s what the class looks like now:
