Three-star OL Jashon Robertson flips from Vanderbilt to Tennessee

In his first full season, Tennessee Volunteers’ head coach Butch Jones continues to clean up on the recruiting trail.

The Volunteers added their 34th commitment in the class of 2014 Thursday when three-star offensive lineman/defensive tackle Jashon Robertson flipped his commitment from the Vanderbilt Commodores to Tennessee.

Daniel Lewis of has the scoop:

The 6-foot-3, 280-pound Robertson of Nashville, Tenn., is a versatile lineman who could project as a defensive tackle or an offensive guard at Tennessee.

“Has good overall size and looks to have a frame that can still support more good mass and should be able to play comfortably around 300 pounds,” wrote in a scouting report. “Displays adequate-to-good first-step quickness.”

Robertson committed to Vanderbilt back on June 19, but after head coach James Franklin left Vanderbilt to be the head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions, Robertson decided to switch his commitment.

Robertson, who is listed at 6’3 and 295 lbs attends Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville. He is viewed as the 529th best overall player in the class of 2014 by 24/7′s composite rankings.
