The Vols made the list along with Georgia, Notre Dame, Fresno State, UCLA and South Carolina.
Tremble ranks as the No. 24 tight end in the Class of 2018 and the No. 53 prospect from Georgia, according to the 247Sports composite rankings.
Georgia seems to be the likely favorite for Tremble because his father played for the Bulldogs and Tremble grew up a Georgia fan. Butch Jones and his staff have been persistent with Tremble, though.
Tennessee commit Adrian Martinez told SEC Country he recently started talking with Tremble and trying to recruit him to the Vols.
Tremble attended Orange Carpet Day in June and enjoyed his time at the pressure-free event.
“It really did make a big impact on me,” Tremble told Josh Ward on the Rocky Talk Podcast. “Just being around that family environment and meeting with the coaches and stuff. With them being real with me and not putting on a show and being personal. It really boosted their thoughts to me.”
Tennessee currently holds a commitment from one tight end this cycle in Jacob Warren.
