Tennessee recruiting: Oliver Lane commits to Vols with ‘Rocky Top’ video
Tennessee coach Butch Jones picked up a commitment from in-state lineman Oliver Lane.
The Gibbs High product out of Corryton, Tenn. made his decision known on Wednesday morning via Twitter, where he posted a video of himself with his high school teammates. With a Vols recruiting website logo in the corner of the screen, it may have been short on drama, but it was still worth the watch to see all these football players sing the well-known Tennessee anthem to help Lane make his decision official.

Lane, who checks in at 6-foot-5 and 285 pounds, rates as a three-star prospect in the 247 Sports composite rankings. He ranks as the No. 25 player from the state of Tennessee in the 2018 recruiting class and the No. 36 offensive guard in the country.
Lane made the decision after an unofficial visit to Knoxville to see the Vols scrimmage over the weekend. He also had offers from Georgia, Georgia Tech, South Carolina, Kentucky and Vanderbilt, among others.
