The Tennessee Vols have added 14 commits to their 2021 recruiting class since March 13.
One of those commits is five-star linebacker Terrence Lewis, the No. 1 linebacker in the nation and the No. 10 overall 2021 recruit.
Lewis, 6-foot-1/200 lbs from Hollwood, FL, is the Vols’ highest rated commit so far.
Rivals national recruiting analyst Rob Cassidy couldn’t help but to gush over Lewis this week. Cassidy noted that Lewis is extremely versatile and that his “trajectory is exciting”.
Here are his full comments:
Terrence Lewis may not be the top linebacker in the country just yet, but the upside is there in spades. There is no more versatile linebacker in the country, as the Miami native can play a number of different spots on the field. He’s more than serviceable in coverage and really shines against the run, where his ability to get off blocks and deliver jarring hits helped his team win a state title a year ago. The Tennessee commit is still becoming more polished and adding size, so he could be a head above the rest at this time next year. His trajectory is exciting.
There’s no doubt that Lewis, along with five-star star defensive end Dylan Brooks, is the centerpiece of the Vols’ 2021 recruiting class.
Keeping Lewis in the commit column will be of utmost importance for Tennessee this fall, because other programs won’t stop pursuing the talented linebacker.
Lewis is the type of player that can thrive in Jeremy Pruitt’s defense. If he follows through with his commitment and signs with the Volunteers, Tennessee will be getting one of the best defensive players in the nation.
