Thomas Commits To Tennessee

Victor Thomas is a highly sought after DE prospect from the state of Mississippi. He had recently narrowed his choices down to Tennessee and Mississippi State and today he made his commitment to join the Vols.

"I committed to Tennessee today. I felt that was the best place for me and they have a great academic program. I think I can go in and get immediate playing time," Victor Thomas said.

What separated the Vols from the Bulldogs?

"The academic support separated them. I also felt like they would be more successful."

Victor called Tennessee this afternoon to let them know of his decision.

"I just called Coach Caldwell. He said he was happy and he was glad I was going to be part of the family. He couldn't wait to get me down there and coach me."

How does he see himself fitting in on the depth chart up in Knoxville?

"I see myself being at least second string if not starting this year."

Victor is a big pickup for Tennessee along the defensive front. We will have a full report on his commitment in the near future…
