Commits to the Vols

<b>Inquoris Johnson</b> is an athlete from Atlanta, GA capable of playing several positions on the next level. He can play wide receiver or corner, and he will get that chance in the SEC. Johnson visited Tennessee this weekend, and he came home a Volunteer.

"The offers he was looking at were from Tennessee and Mississippi State," said Crim Head Coach Darren Myles. "As a child one of his little league teams that he played for was the Tennessee Volunteers. That's kind of a fairy tale story isn't it," Myles added with a laugh. "I think if you weigh the options at one program vs. the other, you definitely have stability and a winning history at Tennessee."

Inquoris Johnson committed to Tennessee while he was there on his visit this weekend. What helped seal the deal for him?

"I felt real comfortable there," said Johnson. "I liked the atmosphere and the coaches. Jayson Swain was my player host while. When I saw the stadium, that was my favorite part of the trip."

Johnson had a 3.0 GPA coming into his senior year, but his core GPA did not make him a qualifier.

"We sat down with him and looked at his transcripts at the beginning of the year, and we looked at what he would need to do this year to become qualified," said Myles. "Once he knew where he needed to focus, he went and got A's in his classes last semester, and he pulled his core GPA up to where it makes him fully qualified now."

Johnson was selected to the North/South All-Star game in Columbus in December after a great season at Crim High School. He joins Jerod Mayo as the second player to choose the Vols this week.
