Solon Page III didn’t plan on making an announcement about his future Saturday when he woke up and traveled to Neyland Stadium. But after a productive conversation with Tennessee coach Butch Jones before the Orange and White Game, the three-star linebacker chose to commit to the Volunteers.
“I was thinking about making a decision over the past few weeks and Tennessee always kept coming up in conversation. I feel like it was a great decision,” Page told SEC Country. “What set Tennessee apart was really just the coaches and the fans and players, and there was really nothing like it.”
Page, a 6-foot-1.5, 192-pounder out of Kell (Marietta, Ga.) High School, is the No. 104 player in the state of Georgia and No. 71 outside linebacker in the nation, per the 247Sports composite.
Tennessee offered Page almost two years ago after he attended one of the Vols’ camps. He picked UT over 11 schools—including Rutgers, which he considers his second home.
Page is the fourth commitment in the Class of 2017 for the Vols. Louisiana CB Cheyenne Labruzza became the fifth later on Saturday.
