The Tennessee Volunteers ranked fourth in the team rankings, but that was largely due to their 32 signees for the 2014 class. Put it this way, only Navy, Army and UAB signed more players than the Vols.

The Volunteers signed 17 four-star athletes, including two of the Top 5 tight ends in Daniel Helm and Ethan Wolf. Also among the signees were running back Jalen Hurd (No. 11), middle linebacker Gavin Bryant (No. 11) and wide receiver Josh Malone (No. 12).

Overall, there's a lot of depth in Tennessee's class, but there isn't a player who jumps off the page right away. Safety Todd Kelly Jr. (No. 12) has a lot of range in the secondary, as does safety Evan Berry (No. 25), who is the brother of current NFL safety Eric Berry.

Tennessee beefed up the defensive line with eight signees, but only had two on the offensive line.
