Tennessee appears to have rounded out the tight end position recruiting for the Class of 2019.
Sean Brown committed to the Vols late Friday night. This was a day earlier than the Rome, Ga., native’s anticipated announcement.

Brown joins Jackson Lowe as the other tight end in the class for the Vols.
The 6-foot-5, 245-pound Brown held SEC offers from Auburn, LSU, Kentucky, Ole Miss and Vanderbilt. Auburn pushed for Brown hard to help fill its need at tight end.
Brown had visited Tennessee’s campus four times since the beginning of March. It’s not a surprise he committed to the Vols, but it proves the team is continuing to pick up momentum on the recruiting trail.
The allure of potential early playing time might have been enough to tip the scales in favor of the Vols. Brown and Lowe bring what offensive coordinator Tyson Helton wants from the tight end position. They are both blocking prospects who will help bring flexibility to the pro-style offense.
