The prospects who are rated among the top 300 recruits in the country from the state of Tennessee have made their college decisions. Andrew Bone takes a quick look at the players and a couple of others who remain uncommitted.


Five recruits landed in the Scout 300, and all five have already announced their college decision.

Jovon Robinson, four-star running back from Memphis-Wooddale, is the state’s top prospect. He committed to Auburn this summer. Schools continue to recruit Robinson especially Memphis.

Brian Kimbrow, four-star running back from Memphis-East, surprised many outside the state when he announced his commitment to Vanderbilt. Those who covered Kimbrow knew the Commodores were the team to beat after unofficial visits to Nashville. This was a signature commitment for new head coach James Franklin.

Will Gross, four-star quarterback from Memphis-Melrose, surprised many when he gave his commitment to Memphis. Gross committed to the hometown school with other offers like Tennessee, Vanderbilt, North Carolina, Kentucky and Louisville.

Chad Voytik, four-star quarterback from Cleveland, decided to venture outside the SEC. He will take his talent to the Big East next year and play for Pittsburgh. Voytik committed to Pittsburgh turning away from Mississippi State and Vanderbilt. He will compete in the U.S. Army All-American game.

Drae Bowles, four-star wide receiver from Jackson (Tenn.) Christian, committed to Tennessee in July. Bowles has also been selected to compete in the U.S. Army All-American game.
