Vols add junior college DT Lambert


The Tennesee Volunteers continue to be one of the hottest teams in recruiting.

The Vols landed commitment No. 24 on Tuesday from junior college defensive tackle DaVonte Lambert (Milledgeville, Ga./Georgia Military).

The 6-foot-2, 275-pound interior defensive lineman chose the Vols over offers from Florida, Auburn, Miami and Georgia, among others. Lambert announced his decision via Twitter and later confirmed his decision via text message.

The SEC is known for having big physical linemen on both sides of the ball. With Lambert's size and athleticism, he should help contribute early in his career in Knoxville.

Lambert becomes the fourth junior-college prospect to commit to the Vols, joining wide receiver Kameel Jackson (Arlington, Texas/Blinn College), outside linebacker Chris Weatherd (Carrolton, Texas/Trinity Valley CC) and wide receiver Eric Lauderdale (Fayetteville, Ga./Saddleback College)

Tennessee, which holds the No. 3-ranked class in the country, has 10 commitments in the ESPN 300 and 11 commits ranked as four-stars.
