2018 four-star offensive tackle Dylan Wonnum, one of the Tennessee Vols’ remaining targets in this year’s class, committed to the South Carolina Gamecocks on Saturday.

Wonnum, a Georgia native, chose the Gamecocks over offers from Auburn and Tennessee. He visited South Carolina last weekend and was visited by Auburn coaches early in the week.
It’s not much of a surprise that Wonnum chose South Carolina — they were considered the favorites down the stretch.
With Wonnum choosing the Gamecocks, it appears that Tennessee will finish the 2018 recruiting cycle with the four offensive linemen they signed during the early signing period in December.
Offensive tackles Jahmir Johnson, Jerome Carvin and Tanner Antonutti, along with offensive guard Ollie Lane, singed with the Volunteers back in December.
It’s unclear how many spots the Vols have left in their 2018 recruiting class. The most common estimate is eight spots. If that’s the case, I’m honestly not sure how Tennessee would’ve even found room for Wonnum.
The Vols currently have three unsigned commits in their 2018 recruiting class — two of which are definitely expected to sign (JJ Peterson and Jordan Young). And they’re hoping to add three defensive backs, a linebacker and possibly another wide receiver in this class. There are only so many spots and I’m not positive Wonnum would’ve had one of those spots.
The Vols currently have the No. 19 class in the nation.
