Tennessee Football signs 4-star OL Douglas Utu against Alabama and Michigan

Douglas Utu, the second-best offensive lineman of the 2025 class, has committed to the Tennessee Volunteers football team.

It’s a big win for the Vols offensive line, which will have to regroup after the 2024 season.

“I am proud to announce that I will be dedicating my craft and talents to the University of Tennessee!” Utu posted Monday on X, formerly known as Twitter.

“You can’t spell UTU without UT! Go Vols!”

Utu is a 6-foot-4, 300-pound four-star prospect from Bishop Gorman High in Las Vegas.

After visiting UT over the weekend, he chose the Vols over Alabama, Michigan, Washington, Nebraska and most of the other top teams in college football.

According to 247Sports Composite, Utu is the second-best offensive lineman in the infield and the 67th-ranked player overall in the 2025 class.

He can sign on December 4, when the early signing period begins.

Utu is UT’s 14th commitment for the Class of 2025 and the second-highest rated.

He joins five-star quarterback George MacIntyre, four-star defensive lineman Ethan Utley, four-star wide receiver Radarious Jackson, four-star tight end Jack Van Doreselaer, four-star offensive lineman Nic Moore, four-star edge rusher Jayden Loftin, three-star running back Justin Baker, three-star safety Sidney Walton, three-star offensive tackle Antoni Kade Ogumoro, three-star cornerback Dylan Lewis, three-star defensive lineman Charles House, three-star Joakim Dodson and three-star cornerback Tyler Redmond.
