Tennessee football: Athlete Dee Beckwith commits to Vols for 2020

Maybe this will help them finally beat Florida on the field. Tennessee football beat out the Gators for a key commitment Wednesday morning, one that got things going early for them on National Signing Day 2020.

Demarcus Beckwith, also known as Dee Beckwith, ended up committing to and signing with Rocky Top. The Vols had been the favorite to land him for a while, and it became even more predictable after the other school in the running, Florida, lost assistant Larry Scott, Beckwith’s primary recruiter, to a head coaching job with the Howard Bison.

As a result, Jeremy Pruitt got a major pickup here.
