2019 four-star athlete Jaden Payoute tweeted on Wednesday afternoon that he received an offer from the Tennessee Vols.

Payoute is a 6-foot-3/195 pound defensive back/wide receiver from Chesterfield, VA (Lloyd C. Bird). He’s rated by 247Sports as the No. 2 player in the state of Virginia and the No. 11 athlete in the nation.
In addition to his offer from Tennessee, Payoute also holds notable offers from Boston College, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Virginia Tech, among several others.
Considering Jeremy Pruitt’s penchant for tall/long defensive backs, I wouldn’t be surprised if the Vols are targeting Payoute as a cornerback/safety.
Tennessee currently has eight commits to their 2019 recruiting class. They don’t have any defensive back commits yet.
