Tennessee head coach Butch Jones landed another of the nations’ top recruits Thursday when defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie verbally committed to the Vols on national TV.
The 6-4, 340 Mckenzie is ranked 31st in the country overall by MaxPreps and 30th by Rivals.
Tennessee had the inside track on McKenzie from the start. He is the son of former Tennessee star linebacker Reggie McKenzie.
McKenzie is already the second five-star commitment in Tennessee’s 2015 recruiting class, which is already ranked in the top 10 nationally.
