Tennessee is hoping to hit the jackpot again with another unheralded three-star football prospect from Las Vegas.

Bishop Gorman High running back and linebacker Will Stallings gave the Volunteers a nonbinding pledge Sunday afternoon. The 6-foot, 222-pounder is the nation's No. 1,188 overall prospect on the 247Sports.com composite rankings, which actually tops the No. 1,677 ranking Cedric Tillman had as a Bishop Gorman receiver in the 2018 signing cycle.

Tillman tallied 64 catches for 1,081 yards and 12 touchdowns last year for the Vols and set a program record with scoring receptions in seven straight games to end the season.

Projected as a running back, Stallings attended camp at Tennessee on June 1 and received a scholarship offer from the Vols on June 6. According to 247Sports, Stallings also received scholarship offers in recent months from Arizona, Arizona State, Army, New Mexico State, San Diego State, Utah State and Western Kentucky in addition to offers last year from Colorado and Pittsburgh.

Stallings told 247Sports that Tennessee was "one of my dream schools I've been watching since I was a kid with my dad on the couch." He becomes the 10th commitment for the Vols in a class that is currently 12th on the 247Sports team rankings.

Among the more heralded Bishop Gorman signees in recent years are running back DeMarco Murray (Oklahoma in 2006), offensive tackle Ronnie Stanley (Notre Dame in 2012), quarterback Tate Martell (Ohio State in 2017) and tight end Brevin Jordan (Miami in 2018).
