Tennessee Football Recruiting: Linebacker Kevin Mouhon Commits to Vols

Just when you thought the Tennessee Volunteers might cool off on the recruiting trail, Head Coach Butch Jones continued to add to their 2014 class with a commitment on Sunday afternoon giving them six within the past week.

Inside linebacker Kevin Mouhon pledged to the Volunteers after spending the weekend in Knoxville on an unofficial visit joining recent commitments Rashaan Gaulden and Ray Raulerson, among others.

Mouhon, a 6-2, 225 pound Georgia native is rated as a three-star prospect, according to the 247 Sports composite rankings, and the No. 13 overall inside linebacker in the 2014 class.

Mouhon had been a heavy Tennessee lean over the past few months, and it was just a matter of time before he decided to pull the trigger.

Mouhon has nice size to fit into Tennessee’s 4-3 defensive scheme at inside linebacker along with solid speed with a 4.6 40-yard dash time.

Mouhon is often overshadowed in the state of Georgia by the nation’s top inside linebacker prospect Raekwon McMillan and even at his own high school by his teammate Lorenzo Carter. Mouhon is another great addition to an already stout defensive class for Tennessee.

Tennessee already has 24 commitments in the 2014 class and is unanimously ranked as the No. 1 class in the nation. The Volunteers will look to add five to six more spots to fill out their class as Jones continues to win off the field without even coaching a game so far.
