The Tennessee Vols are one of the programs that’s made a big impression on 2021 four-star quarterback Kaidon Salter.
Salter, 6-foot-1/185 lbs from Cedar Hill, TX, is rated by 247Sports as the No. 12 player in the state of Texas and the No. 4 dual-threat quarterback in the nation.
The Texas native recently visited Tennessee (just prior to the suspension of recruiting by the NCAA, due to the Coronavirus outbreak). Salter talked to VolQuest about his visit and pointed out that UT is among his top five schools, along with Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor and South Carolina.
Salter said Tennessee considers him a pro-style quarterback who can use his legs when he’s forced from the pocket.
247Sports recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks describes Salter as a “pass-first quarterback, but definitely athletic enough to hurt defenses with his legs”. Brooks added that Salter has “good downfield arm strength with above average short-to-intermediate velocity” and “great improvisational skills”.
The dynamic quarterback told Rivals last week that he plans to commit before the start of his senior season. Salter said he’ll start planning official visits once the Coronavirus outbreak settles down.
Tennessee currently has seven players committed to their 2021 recruiting class, which is ranked No. 12 in the nation.
