Linebacker picks the Vols

Class of 2013 prospect Corey Vereen (Winter Garden, Fla./West Orange) has committed to sign with Tennessee, according to multiple sources.

The linebacker also received scholarship offers from Florida State, South Florida, Georgia Tech, Minnesota, Ole Miss, Duke, Clemson, Central Florida and Temple.

Louisville, Miami-FL, South Carolina and Washington State were among the other programs recruiting the 6-foot-2, 230-pounder.

Vereen registered a 4.91 40-yard dash, 4.25 20-yard shuttle and 28.5-inch vertical on the combine circuit last offseason.

The Vols now have five verbals for 2013; three from Tennessee and two from Florida.
