Tennessee added another piece to its 2017 recruiting class.
Terrell Bailey, a 3-star cornerback from John Ehret High School (Marrero, La.), committed to the Volunteers on Thursday night.

The 6-foot, 175-pound defensive back reports 17 offers, and chose Tennessee over Texas A&M, Ole Miss and Arkansas, among others.
What are the Vols getting in Bailey? His high school coach, Corey Lambert, spoke very highly of the nation’s No. 48 cornerback and the state of Louisiana’s No. 21 overall player.
“He’s a lockdown corner. He covers the best wide receivers in Louisiana,” Lambert told SEC Country’s Jesse Simonton.
Running backs coach and recruiting coordinator Robert Gillespie played a big part in landing Bailey’s commitment. He becomes the 25th commitment of the Vols’ 2017 class, joining fellow 3-star cornerbacks CJ Cotman and Cheyenne Labruzza.
