Although Tennessee’s current players are on Spring Break, recruiting never ceases for the program’s coaching staff.
That was evident Monday nigh when the Vols picked up their third pledge for the Class of 2017. Marquez Bembry, a three-star athlete from Mount Vernon Presbyterian (Atlanta) who holds 11 other offers, announced his commitment on social media.
“Proud to say I’ve committed to the University of Tennessee #VolNation,” Bembry tweeted.
Just last week, Bembry told SEC Country that receiving a Tennessee offer was “a pretty big deal” to him and gushed about his Junior Day experience.
The 6-foot-3, 214-pound rising senior is rated the nation’s No. 66 athlete and Georgia’s No. 73 overall prospect, according to the 247Sports composite ranking.
