Tennessee Adds Two More Commitments To Class of 2012

Tennessee received commitments on Thursday from linebacker Otha Peters and defensive end LaTroy Lewis.

Peters, who attends Covington (La.) High School, chose UT over offers from Mississippi State, Nebraska and Texas A&M.

“I’ve pretty much been liking Tennessee since they offered me or whatever, but I just didn’t know about the distance and how my mom would be all right with that,” Peters told “But I talked to her about it (Wednesday) night and she said she’s OK with it. I just wanted to commit to Tennessee. I didn’t want to drag it out anymore.”

Lewis’ commitment gave UT six for the week and eight for the class of 2012. He picked the Vols over Notre Dame, which hadn’t yet offered him a scholarship. Michigan, Ohio State and Iowa had offered Lewis.

“I loved Tennessee a lot when I went (for a visit),” Lewis told GVX247. “The people there are great and the facilities are great. The history is great. Their school is great.”

There had been growing concern about UT’s class as the Vols entered the week with only two commitments. As coach Derek Dooley said Thursday at SEC Media Days, patience has been a key to the Vols’ recruiting efforts.
