Tennessee's 2019 football recruiting class moved up to 14th nationally in both of the major recruiting rankings after the Volunteers picked up a commitment from Atlanta-area cornerback Warren Burrell on Friday.
A four-star prospect according to Rivals.com and a three-star prospect according to 247Sports.com, Burrell is Tennessee's first cornerback in a class that now has 16 committed players.
"I thank God for the many blessings I've received throughout this recruiting process," Burrell wrote in an announcement on Twitter. "I am very grateful for all of the schools who have shown interest in me, but especially the University of Florida, Tennessee, and NC State. The entire process has been an extreme blessing and without the constant support of my family, this wouldn't be a reality. This decision has not been an easy one, however, I am happy to say I am committed to the University of Tennessee!!"
Burrell intercepted five passes for North Gwinnett High School as a junior in 2017, when the Bulldogs won Georgia's Class AAAAAAA state championship over Colquitt County.
