The Tennessee Vols are among the top five schools for 2021 speedy four-star wide receiver Brashard Smith (along with Miami, Oregon, Auburn and Florida).

Smith, 5-foot-10/180 lbs from Miami, FL, is rated by Rivals as the No. 52 player in the state of Florida and the No. 50 wide receiver in the nation.
The dynamic wide receiver committed to Florida in January, but he decommitted from the Gators earlier this month.
The Florida native reportedly runs a 4.34 in the 40 yard dash. That’s the kind of elite speed that Tennessee needs on their roster.
Over the last several years — especially in 2017-2018 — the lack of speed on the Vols’ roster against higher tiered SEC programs was beyond noticeable. Smith, however, could help change that. He’s the type of player that could create massive headaches for opposing defensive coordinators.
How many times have we seen smaller, speedy wide receivers torch Tennessee? It seems like Florida always has a player like Smith that creates issues for the Vols.
Stealing Smith, who was an All-Dade 8A-6A first-team selection in 2019, out of Florida could flip the script for the Vols.
I’m sure it would be incredibly satisfying for UT fans to watch a player from Florida wreak havoc on the Gators.
Tennessee currently has 24 players committed to their 2021 recruiting class.
