DaVonte Lambert and 6 Other Critical 2014 Commits
With 24 commitments, it’s hard to pick the most significant member of the Vols’ 2014 class. Moreover, predicting recruiting is analogous to predicting next year’s weather. Still, here is an attempt to name seven of the most important prospects that the Vols have received commitments from:
DL DaVonte Lambert (Milledgeville, Ga./Georgia Military)
Tennessee doesn’t have one rebuilding project to manage. It has two. The Vols have to find a quarterback, some receivers and a capable defense in 2013. Then head coach Butch Jones and his staff will have to find an entirely new offensive line and some defensive linemen in 2014. Lambert is a major step in addressing that need next year. At 6-foot-3 and 275 pounds, he can provide the Vols with a versatile lineman that could play defensive tackle or defensive end, depending on where the Vols need him. As a junior college player, he should be physically ready to compete for playing time immediately. If Lambert proves to be that versatile and dependable, there’s no more important commitment in UT’s 2014 class.
