Tennessee continues to build momentum in the recruiting world. Sign in or subscribe now to see what quarterback gave his pledge to coach Derek Dooley and the Volunteers.

Quarterback is not a pressing need for Tennessee football at the present time. However, with it being one of the more important positions in all of team sports, having depth and experience is a must.

The Volunteers just got their quarterback for the Class of 2012 in the fold in Nathan Peterman, who pledged to Tennessee on Wednesday morning.

Peterman is a 6-foot-2, 205-pound signal caller out of St. Johns, Fla. He led Bartram Trail High School to a 7-4 finish last season with a first-round Class 3A FHSAA playoff 16-15 loss to St. Augustine.

He finished the regular season with 2,016 yards passing with 20 touchdowns and six interceptions.

Peterman plans to enroll at Tennessee in January. He carries a 3.75 GPA with an ACT score of 25.
