Vols get verbal commit from state's top linebacker

NASHVILLE, TN -- Since Butch Jones took over as the head coach at the University of Tennessee, the big name recruits have come rolling through the door.

If you ask Jones, though, he'd say priority number one is to get the best players from Tennessee, and the Vols did that Saturday.

The state's number one linebacker for 2016 is Nashville Christian's Daniel Bituli, and he's now a future Vol.

Bituli tweeted that he's committing to Tennessee just a day after taking his second visit to Knoxville. The four star player had 61 tackles last year.

Bituli stands 6'3", 235 pounds and is considered the 14th best linebacker nationally.

He's the 13th known recruit for the Vols for 2016.
