Highly sought-after recruit joins Tennessee Volunteers
Highly sought-after recruit joins Tennessee Volunteers

There isn’t much going on in the football world in the summer, but there is a lot of demand for young talent, especially for the Tennessee Volunteers.

From 20 December 2023 247Sport ranked Tennessee’s 2024 recruiting class 13th nationally and 7th in the Southeastern Conference. The Vols have a lot to look forward to next season, but looking further ahead to 2025, player recruitment is already thriving.

Current Vols Recruitment


On June 28, 2024, the Vols received a commitment from four-star edge rusher Mariyon Dye.

Dye is a 6’5″, 250-pound defensive end from Elkhart Central High School in Elkhart, Indiana. He is a versatile talent, having played both basketball and football. In his high school career, Dye totaled 61 tackles for an average of 4.4 per game. He also totaled four sacks in his college career.

Accordingly On 3 Rankings, Dye is ranked as a top 40 player and number five in the class of 2025. He also holds a 92.59 On 3 Industry ranking.

Dye brings a lot of energy and talent to a defensive unit that already has a strong back line. Since he’s coming in 2025, the defensive end won’t be playing alongside Vols star James Pearce Jr., but he brings great talent and will be able to strengthen the defensive unit once he’s there.

The Tennessee Volunteers have a bright future ahead of them and if they continue to recruit players like Mariyon Dye, they will be in incredible shape for years to come.
