Maurer, 6-foot-2/180 pounds from Ocala, FL, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 61 player in the state of Florida and the No. 18 pro-style quarterback in the nation. He committed to Tennessee over offers from Boston College, Ohio State, Texas A&M and West Virginia, among several others.
Maurer has a nice touch on his passes, and he also has great pocket awareness. He’s obviously not a speedster, but he’ll take what the defense gives him. If he needs to tuck it and run for a first down, he will.
Overall, this is a really nice pickup for the Vols. He’s not an extremely highly rated quarterback, but the Vols’ coaching staff has showed they’re not trying to find diamonds in the rough. They clearly believe in this kid.
Tennessee now has 12 commits to their 2019 recruiting class, which is ranked No. 17 in the nation.
