Tennessee's 2018 recruiting class already looked strong but on Monday night it got even strong when Jackson (TN) 5-star defensive end Greg Emerson announced he was committing to the Vols.
Emerson is another big time pickup for Tennessee. Just about every school in the country had offered him including Ohio State, Alabama, Florida State, Clemson, USC, Penn State, Georgia, Nebraska, and the list goes on and on.
What attracted so many schools to Emerson? Watch the video below and you'll see that he's big, fast and mean. Simply put, when you have someone that is 6-foot-5 inches and 280 pounds, mostly muscle, and this player runs as fast as some running backs, you have the makings of a one-man wrecking ball for opposing offenses.
Most services rate Emerson as 4-stars, for whatever reason. He's 5-stars here on 14powers.com. The successful college coaches who have offered him know better than anyone that this player is of an elite quality.
