The Tennessee staff picked up two commitments Saturday evening when Texas cornerback Darrell Miller and Florida defensive end Marques Ford committed to Tennessee at the Orange Carpet Day event in Knoxville.
Miller, a 5-foot-11, 165-pound cornerback from Cedar Hill, Texas, committed to the Vols over offers from Michigan State, Ohio State, Boise State, Wisconsin and others. He visited Tennessee for the first time in June and followed it up with a visit to Knoxville this weekend.
Ford, a 6-foot-3, 225-pound speed-rush defensive end committed to Tennessee even though he had more than 25 offers, including those from Miami, Arkansas, Virginia Tech, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Virginia Tech, Wisconsin and more.
Ford was recently named the top defensive lineman at the Rivals Camp Series presented by Under Armour stop in Miami.
Volquest.com will have more on both commitments throughout the night.
