Glenn Stanley, a four-star linebacker from Eastern Arizona Junior College, committed to Tennessee late Sunday.
The 6-foot-2, 245-pound Stanley was one of nine official visitors to UT this weekend.
He played at Trinity Catholic High School in Ocala, Fla., and committed to Central Florida on Oct. 22. The Orlando Sentinel reported that Stanley was supposed to enroll at UCF in January but never started classes.
“What really sets him apart is his speed,” Eastern Arizona coach John O’Mera told The Orlando Sentinel last October. “He is 6-foot-2, 250, but he can run the 40 in 4.4. Not many people can do that. He just can get all over the field to make plays.”
Stanley was named to the Western State Football League first team.
UT has 19 commitments, eight of which are already enrolled. The Vols are expected to sign approximately 27 prospects. National Signing Day is Feb. 3.
Calling Calvin: Former UT commitment Calvin Smith was wowed by his official visit to Alabama over the weekend.
“Phenomenal. Everything about it was great. They really treat you right down there,” the defensive tackle from Hialeah (Fla.) High School told Bamaonline.com. “They really couldn’t have done anymore to convince me to come to Alabama. It is really going to be a tough decision. Alabama is going to be right up there when I make my decision.”
The 6-4, 265-pound Smith was committed to UT before UT’s coaching change. He is still considering the Vols, but has opened up his recruitment. Dooley met with Smith and his teammate, defensive end Corey Lemonier, last week.
Smith is expected to announce his decision on Feb. 3.
Not Hunting: Receiver Justin Hunter from Ocean Lake High in Virginia Beach, Va., says he is still committed to UT even though the lead coach in his recruitment, Willie Mack Garza, left Thursday to join former coach Lane Kiffin’s staff at Southern California, just two days after securing Hunter’s verbal pledge.
“It’s been hard,” the 6-4, 175-pounder told Volquest.com “A lot of coaches are trying to see if I am interested. The phone ringing on and off the hook. But I don’t want to talk to anyone else or visit anyone else. I am done. I am ready to sign with Tennessee.”
