Three-star tight end A.J. Branisel was one of Butch Jones' first 2013 commits while he was the coach of Cincinnati. Now he is one of Jones' first 2013 commitments at Tennessee.

Branisel, the No. 17 tight end-H nationally, verbally committed to the Volunteers on Wednesday.

"They need help and I feel I can help them get back on track," Branisel said.
