The Tennessee Vols have been beefing up their 2021 recruiting class over the last few weeks, but that does’t mean they’re ignoring the 2022 class.
One of the Vols’ top 2022 recruiting targets is wide receiver Isaiah Horton, 6-foot-3/190 lbs from Nashville.
Horton hasn’t been rated yet by the major recruiting services, but he already boasts offers from Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Miami and Tennessee, among several others.
The Tennessee native recently spoke with VolQuest about his recruitment and it’s clear that he’s trending toward the Volunteers.
“I’m just comfortable talking to Tennessee. It’s chill. They make UT feel like a home to me. Like I’m comfortable being there”, said Horton.
The dynamic wide receiver added “I like Tennessee, so every time I came down there they checked all those boxes.”
“They just keep showing me more love. My family is starting to really like it…..It’s like the home state school. Hometown guys going there. I want to be a part of that as well.”
It doesn’t hurt that Horton is former teammates with two current Vols. Incoming freshmen Keshawn Lawerence and Tyler Baron attended Ensworth in Nashville with Horton (Baron eventually transferred to Knoxville Catholic), so Tennessee definitely has the inside track here.
Horton has elite size and speed (reportedly running the 40 yard dash in 4.46 seconds). He’s absolutely a player that could have a bright future at Tennessee if he chooses to sign with the Vols.
