Although it won’t help lessen the sting of Saturday’s 45-10 loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide, fans of the Tennessee Volunteers should be excited to learn that four-star defensive end prospect Dewayne Hendrix made his verbal commitment to Tennessee on Sunday. The 6-foot-5, 265-pound Hendrix has been selected to play in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, and he chose the Volunteers over schools like Missouri and Florida.

Hendrix, who has 53 tackles so far this season, said he knew from the beginning that he’d end up a Volunteer:

From the moment that I walked in there I knew that I was going to be a Vol. I had this feeling when I walked in there. I tried to take my mom the second time and she had the same feeling. Me and my mom had a long talk about it last night and we both decided it was time.


I really could see myself being there for the next four years. There’s nothing that I could find that I didn’t like about Tennessee (Belleville News Democrat).

The Volunteers now have 12 players from the ESPN 300 in their 2014 recruiting class.
