Tennessee has received some good news on Monday and some of that came from an athlete out of Georgia. Justin King is excited about being a Vol.

"I talked to Coach Sirmon and I am committed to Tennessee now," said Justin King. "It came down to me feeling comfortable there when I was on my visit there Saturday. It is a place I am excited about being."

The 6-foot-4, 215 pound athlete out of Dunwoody, Ga. will play outside linebacker for the Vols and that is where Scout has him rated.

UT could be getting a steal here.

King has played all over the field on the high school level and was being recruited as a linebacker, wide receiver, and some talked about tight end.

He is happy to have his decision made.

"It feels good to be committed and to know that I am going to be playing in the SEC," he said. "We are going to compete every week in the SEC and I can't wait. I am going to start telling others about Tennessee and see if we can have a great recruiting class this year."

Chad Simmons started out with Scout in 2003 covering top talent in Georgia and other areas in the South. He then moved on to another Recruiting Service from 2004-2008 before returning to Scout the first of 2009 to become Southeast Recruiting Manager.
