Junior college defensive end prospect DaVonte Lambert is signing with the Auburn Tigers.
Lambert made the announcement via Twitter. His high school tweeted a photo of Lambert signing his Letter of Intent.
Lambert, a 6-3, 278-pound strongside end at Georgia Military College, had been verbally committed to Tennessee since August. But Auburn made a late push and Lambert had reportedly wrestled with his decision up until the junior college signing period began on Tuesday.
A native of Waynesboro, Ga., Lambert is the No. 6 overall junior college player according to the 247Sports Composite ratings and the top strongside defensive end.
The Vols signed three junior college prospects earlier on Wednesday. Receiver Von Pearson, offensive tackle Dontavius Blair and defensive tackle Owen Williams all submitted National Letters of Intent and plan to enroll at UT in January and go through spring practice.
The Vols could welcome almost a dozen more early enrollees next month. The traditional National Signing Day for high school prospects is Feb. 5.
