Watching the Tennessee/Alabama game, Todd Blackledge made mention that Tennessee had not completed a pass to a tight end this season. That should change early next year as Chris Brown of Jesuit High School in New Orleans has made a commitment to the Vols.
"I committed to Tennessee this week," said Brown. "That's kind of
been a lifelong dream for me. I always wanted to go to a big school. Tennessee
came down to see me. They came to one of my practices and watched one of my game
tapes. I got the offer and committed to them. I know that Tennessee likes to
throw the ball to the tight end a lot, and they haven't really been able to do
that this year."
Brown is a receiving tight end that will pose a big target for the Tennessee
quarterback next season. At 6-3 and 235 pounds with 4.6 speed, Brown has helped
lead his Jesuit team to a 7-1 record with 20 catches for 430 yards and three
Brown was a standout at camps this summer at LSU, Tulane, and Florida, and he
chose Tennessee over offers from those three schools plus Indiana.
