The University of Tennessee picked up its sixth commitment and second in two days from a California athlete.
Chabot Junior College Defensive lineman Patrick Harris confirmed with Scout.com that he is indeed a Volunteer. Harris turned in a tremendous performance last week and is expected to be one of the top junior college defensive linemen.
"My mind has been telling me Tennessee for a while," Harris told InsideTennessee Friday afternoon. "I just wanted to make sure it was the right option. I'm excited about playing for Lane Kiffin. I have been a Raider fan for a long time."
Harris impressed Junior College experts in a recent combine.
"Patrick is a monster," said Kevin Lustgarten of JCFootball.com. "He has great speed, great explosion and will be a great player at the next level."
Defensive line coach Ed Orgeron was at Harris practice today.
"I'm very excited about playing for Coach Orgeron," Harris said. "Coach O is one of the best defensive line coach in the country, I want to get to the next level and I'm confident he can do that. Tennessee offered me about a month a go; they were the first to offer."
