Tennessee had been trending in the right direction for tight end Sean Brown from Rome (Ga.) Coosa High School for more than a month.
He finally decided and joined the Class of 2019 on Friday night.
Let’s get to know the sixth addition to the class.

Skill set: Brown is a 6-foot-5, 245-pound blocking tight end. He has the ability to get off the line and run routes. He possesses a frame that should make him a red-zone threat or an easy find for a quarterback under duress. He will be used mostly as a pass and run blocker on Rocky Top, though.
Immediate impact: Tennessee didn’t have any players on campus this spring who bring what Brown does to the field. That already has changed with junior college transfer Dominick Wood-Anderson making his way to campus. The Vols also have a commit in the 2019 class from Jackson Lowe of Cartersville, Ga. Lowe and Brown will be the future of the position. Wood-Anderson and the pair will get plenty of opportunities in the 2019 season.
Fitting into the program: The coaching staff has not wavered on its stance of wanting to get bigger and more physical at every position. Brown fits that mold. If you’re not a “hard-nosed” prospect, the Vols likely will not recruit you. Brown doesn’t shy away from physical football.
Recruiting at the position: Brown and Lowe will round out the recruiting at the position for this class. The two have been on visits at the same time to Tennessee and Auburn. They apparently get along, which is a good thing for the Vols. The Vols tried to sign three tight ends in the Class of 2018 because it is such a need. This is likely it at tight end this cycle.
