KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee picked up its second commitment this week when four-star defensive end prospect Derek Barnett said he would sign with the Vols.
A student at Brentwood Academy in suburban Nashville, Barnett is 6-foot-3 and 265 pounds and projects as a strong-side end. He had offers from Florida State, Vanderbilt, Georgia Tech and others. His 247Sports profile is here.
Tennessee coach Butch Jones followed up with a not-so-subtle tweet a few moments later.
