Volquest.com is reporting the Tennessee Vols picked up their 15th commitment Friday evening.
6-4, 225 pound junior college linebacker Chris Whetherd chose the Vols, even after a late offer from the Oklahoma Sooners.
Whetherd failed to qualify academically after high school and enrolled at Trinity Valley Community College in Oklahoma. He said he was grateful for a second chance and would make the most of it at Tennessee.
Volquest.com's Paul Fortenberry said the energy from new head coach Butch Jones and the early commitments of local players Todd Kelly, Jr. and Vic Wharton.
