KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Charlotte defensive back Stephen Griffin, has verbally committed to Tennessee.

Griffin is listed at 6-foot-3 and 187 pounds on his 247Sports profile.

He’s listed as a safety or cornerback, although his apparent size — even as a 17-year-old — makes it seem more likely that he would end up at safety.

Griffin confirmed his commitment on his Twitter account.

Griffin also had recent offers from Michigan, Boston College and others. In addition to UT, he had recently visited Clemson, Duke and North Carolina.

He confirmed his UT commitment on his Twitter account.

Here’s a look at Tennessee’s 2015 commitment list, which now has nine prospects.
