Tennessee football gets second commitment of the day following 4-star running back Cody Brown's pledge
Tennessee football earned its second commitment of the day on Sunday afternoon with the addition of four-star running back Cody Brown.
Brown took to Twitter to make his pledge known about an hour after three-star defensive back De'Shawn Rucker announced his commitment.
He is ranked as the No. 9 running back in the nation and No. 11 prospect in Georgia in the 247Sports Composite rankings.
"I've made my decision," Brown wrote on Twitter.
Brown is also the second running back to join Tennessee's 2021 class in the past three days, following Tiyon Evans, the top junior college running back, who committed on Thursday.
He is the seventh prospect to commit to Tennessee in the past week, joining five-star linebacker Terrence Lewis, four-star wide receiver Julian Nixon, four-star defensive back Kamar Wilcoxson and five-star defensive end Dylan Brooks, as well as Evans and Rucker.
Brown picked Tennessee over offers from Auburn, Georgia, Ohio State and others.
At 6-foot-0, 225 pounds, Brown gives the Vols a bruiser at running back. He rushed for 1,676 yards and 20 touchdowns and averaged 7.8 yards per carry during his junior season at Parkview High School in Lilburn, Georgia.
Tennessee's 2021 class now has 17 public commitments. The class is ranked third in the nation and first in the SEC.
