It's not a secret that Tennessee is in need of middle linebackers.
Derek Dooley and his coaching staff picked up some much needed help when Hoover, Alabama, linebacker John Propst decided to be a Vol.
"Yes sir I'm a Vol," Propst texted InsideTennessee.com. "I committed to Coach Dooley this morning."
Propst was committed to West Virginia until Sunday morning.
The appeal of playing in the SEC and closer to home apparently was too much for Propst to pass up.
