Tennessee Football Recruiting: 4-Star DE To Visit, Offer 4-Star WR & More

The Tennessee Volunteers are just one week away from the start of the regular season, but that doesn't mean they've let up on the recruiting trail - in fact, it has been the exact opposite. Here's all the latest Tennessee recruiting news and rumors you need to know:

DE target schedules visit
Four-star defensive end Deron Irving-Bey (Flint, MI) announced he will make an official visit to Tennessee on Oct. 15 to watch the Vols take on Alabama. 

“I have one visit set right now. I’m going to Tennessee when they play Alabama on October 15th,” said Irving-Bey. “Tennessee has been talking to me for a while, and they’ve really turned it around down there. (Defensive line) coach (Steve) Stripling and I talk a lot, and he’s telling me that I have a chance to be a part of a dominant line for them. I’m excited to watch them this year because they’re going to be real good.”

Irving-Bey, who is also considering Maryland and Michigan State, is ranked as the No. 12 strong-side defensive end and No. 299 overall prospect in the 2017 class.

3-star commit still listening to other schools
Three-star athlete Marquez Bembry (Atlanta, GA) committed to Tennessee five months about, and those he still insists he's "solid" on the Vols, he is listening to other schools.

“I hear from Southern Cal, and then I also hear from Ole Miss,” said Bembry. “I’d say I’m still really solid on Tennessee. But I also still keep an open ear — just the fact that you want to hear other schools’ pitches. Just like I heard Tennessee’s pitch, why not give another school that opportunity, as well?”

“I continue to hear more from Georgia. I know they wanted me to come up there this past weekend, but I had some other stuff to do. I went up there and saw the campus. It’s a pretty good campus. I liked it.

“(Florida is) still trying to get me down there because they really want me to see the campus and stuff like that, because I also have a friend that goes there, too. He went to Dunwoody High School — (offensive lineman) Nick Buchanan. That’s a guy I stay in touch with a lot because, when he comes back, we kind of hang out with each other, work out, go hit the field and stuff like that.”

The 6'4", 210-pounder is ranked as the No. 45 athlete and No. 622 overall prospect in the country.

Vols offer 2019 WR
Tennessee has also a scholarship to 2019 four-star wide receiver Jamario Holley from Rock Hill, SC. 

Holley also has offers from Florida State, Kentucky and South Carolina. He is ranked as the No. 8 wideout and No. 48 overall prospect in the 2019 class.
