KNOXVILLE (WATE) – The future of Tennessee’s offensive front got a major boost with the verbal commitment from Marcus Tatum in January.
The Mainland High School offensive tackle is a four-star prospect. Tatum made a trip down to the swamp when Tennessee played Florida in November.
“Marcus Tatum is a guy that Tennessee did a fantastic job of holding off Florida on. Obviously, they had the backyard favorite,” said Inside Tennessee’s Danny Parker. Parker said Tatum played basketball which really helped his foot-speed, but he needs to put on a lot of weight.
