Rocky Top’s monster weekend began Friday as Tennessee football picked up its 10th commitment for 2024 while the basketball Vols picked up their third transfer of the week. Caleb Calhoun and Dave Hooker address both on Off The Hook’s Monday, April 24 podcast along with the Alabama Crimson Tide’s quarterback issues, new college football rules changes and the transfer portal.
Georgia DL Jeremias Heard commits to Tennessee football
Rome, Ga., 2024 defensive lineman Jeramias Heard became the 10th commitment to Tennessee football on Friday.

Last year, his junior year, was his first year playing football since he was in the eighth grade.
