2021 five-star defensive tackle Payton Page released his top five schools on Saturday and the Tennessee Vols made the cut, along with Clemson, LSU, North Carolina and Oregon.

Page, 6-foot-4/315 lbs from Greensboro, NC, is rated in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 1 player in the state of North Carolina and the No. 7 overall player in the nation.

The North Carolina native, who totaled eight sacks as a junior in 2019, is described by 247Sports director of scouting Barton Simmons as a player who “will be a power five impact player based on pure physical traits and has the tools to develop into an early round NFL Draft pick”.

Page, who took an unofficial visit to Tennessee this past summer, will likely use his official visits on the schools listed in his top five. He recently told Rivals that Florida had been recruiting him hard, but their lack of inclusion in Page’s top five list likely means the Gators are out.

The immensely talented five-star defensive lineman expects to commit around the start of his senior season.
