Coalfield High School sophomore offensive lineman Zach Stewart has committed to the University of Tennessee, according a report from GoVols247.com.
Stewart confirmed the news to the News Sentinel by text message. He picked up an offer from Tennessee on March 19 when he attended one of the Vols’ spring practices.
The 6-foot-4, 298-pound Stewart was named PrepXtra Sophomore of the Year by the News Sentinel for the 2012 season, when he made 117 tackles on defense and blocked for a 2,000-yard rusher during Coalfield’s run to the Class 1A state semifinals.
