Offensive lineman T.J. Leifheit from Hoggard High School in Wilmington, N.C., committed to North Carolina during an official visit this weekend, his mother told the News Sentinel on Sunday.
The 6-foot-7, 300-pound Leifheit had strongly considered UT before choosing North Carolina.
He visited Knoxville twice in the past month. Leifheit took an official visit to UT on Sept. 12 and returned for an unofficial visit on Sept. 26.
UT received official visits from three offensive linemen this weekend: Cullen, Green and Jawuan James from North Gwinnett High in Suwanee, Ga.
The Vols are also actively recruiting James Stone from Maplewood High in Nashville, Morgan Moses from Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., and Arie Kouandjio from DeMatha High in Hyattsville, Md.
UT has commitments from three offensive linemen for 2010: Zach Fulton from Homewood (Ill.) Flossmoor High, Jose Jose from Miami Central High School and Marques Pair from Sumter (S.C.) High.
