The skinny: Brown was prepared to venture from South Florida to Syracuse when he started getting late attention from Tennessee and others. A last-weekend visit to Knoxville sealed the deal, and he announced he would sign with the Vols on Signing Day. Brown might need to bulk up a bit before pushing for playing time, but Tennessee may have the luxury to redshirt some defensive linemen if necessary.
