Four-star linebacker commits to the Vols

The Vols added their first commit of the new year. Highly touted four-star linebacker J.J. Peterson chose the Volunteers during the Army All-American game on Saturday.

Peterson chose Tennessee over Georgia and Alabama. Our media partner Volquest.com reports he will visit Knoxville next weekend.

The linebacker is former teammates with two current Vols in Ja'Quain Blakely and Shawn Shamburger.

Peterson is also good friends with another prospect Tennessee has their eye on in Quay Walker.
