Tennessee football is having quite the weekend so far as another 2021 four-star announces that he’s coming to Rocky Top.
For the female readers, I hope you’re having an amazing Mother’s Day, and if you sing Rocky Top in your sleep, then I hope Jeremy Pruitt and Tennessee football can make your day a little bit better.
It’s so far so good for the Vols as another four-star in the 2021 class has committed to Tennessee and is joining one of his teammates as a verbal commit for the Vols.
Out of Baltimore, Maryland, and St. Francis Academy, outside linebacker Aaron Willis has committed to the Vols to join his teammate, KaTron Evans, in Tennessee’s 2021 recruiting class and Dominic Bailey, who also played at St. Francis and was a part of the 2020 class.
Willis is the No. 112 nationally, No. 9 for his position, and No. 4 in the state, according to 247Sports. His commitment video was selflessly dedicated it to his mom for Mother’s Day.
The 6-foot, 205-pound linebacker is a lean, mean, hittin’ machine in between the hashes and could be the big hitter that the Vols could need to win the SEC and take their dominance to the next level.
It only took eight seconds into his junior year highlight tape to see his hard-hitting ability, and if you haven’t watched it, then I would highly recommend you watch it because he’s making grown man tackles already.
He’s all over the field and if he’s away from the ball, he’ll be making his way across the field and putting a hit on whoever has the ball within a couple of seconds.
I can only imagine what Pruitt and the strength coaches will do for Willis in the weight room. He’s only 205 pounds, but don’t expect him to still be that weight come fall 2021.
Along with laying down hits that’ll make you jump out of your seat watching him, he can also cover in the flat and passes at the second level very well.
Willis and his high school teammate KaTron Evans could be big contributors on Tennessee’s defense for the three or four years they’re on Rocky Top, and they fit Pruitt’s defense near perfectly.
