The Tennessee Volunteers have had a spectacular July on the recruiting trail. On Tuesday, they sent the month out with a bang adding junior college defensive lineman Savion Williams. With Williams in the fold, six different players committed to UT in the month of July.

Williams is currently at Lackawanna Community College, which is situated in the home of Michael Scott and Dwight Schrute, Scranton, Pennsylvania. He played his high school ball in Upper Marlboro, Maryland.

In addition to Tennessee, Williams currently boasts double-digit scholarship offers from many quality programs. The likes of West Virginia, Georgia, North Carolina State, Nebraska, Pittsburgh, Central Florida, and his home state Maryland Terrapins have all extended offers, and for good reason.

Williams is a monster in every sense of the word. He is an imposing 6-foot-4, 315 pounds. At his size, he can play the tackle spot and eat up space on the interior of the defensive line. He also possesses the mobility and versatility to work effectively as a defensive end (although, in Jeremy Pruitt’s system, he likely wouldn’t be a great fit at the position). This is a rare trait for a guy who is well over the 300-pound mark.

This latest addition gives the Volunteers 18 known commits for 2019 and the Vols’ class now sits at No. 14 in the 247 Sports composite team ranking.
