Tennessee has found a quarterback of the future when Tyler Bray confirmed to the News Sentinel that he has committed to be a Vol.
The confirmation ended a frantic afternoon in which some recruiting websites reported he was committed while others reported he wasn’t yet officially a Vol.
Nevertheless, the commitment is hardly a surprise. Bray raved to the News Sentinel on Sunday about his official visit to UT this weekend, especially the atmosphere of Neyland Stadium as the Vols thrashed Western Kentucky 63-7.
The 6-foot-6, 200-pounder from Kingsburg (Calif.) High School is one of the fastest rising quarterback prospects in the nation. He had been committed to San Diego State (his only other offer) since July.
The commitment represents a major accomplishment for the Vols, who had been spurned by a handful of quarterbacks for the 2010 class.
