KNOXVILLE – Tennessee coach Butch Jones is showing that his 2014 recruiting class, ranked as one of the best in the nation, is not a fluke.

That’s because he’s building an impressive 2015 class as well and that group got a huge boost on Friday afternoon when elite 2015 linebacker Cecil Cherry of Frostproof, Fla., committed to the Vols while on a visit to Knoxville.

Cherry, a 6-0, 220-pound inside linebacker, holds one of the best offer lists in the nation for his class. That list includes Alabama, Florida, Auburn, Clemson, Florida State, Miami, Ohio State, South Carolina, Virginia Tech and many others.As a sophomore, he recorded 118 tackles, two interceptions, two forced fumbles and worked as a short-yardage back for Frostproof High School last season.
