Plans have changed for four-star offensive tackle Jordan Seaton. The No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2024 class was slated to officially visit Oklahoma, but he decided to visit Tennessee instead.
The news was first reported by On3, and Seaton confirmed the report on Twitter/X. It will be his first visit Tennessee.
Tennessee has been pushing Seaton hard in recent days, trying to get him to campus for a visit. He ranks as the No. 36 prospect in the country according to 247Sports Composite. The 6-foot-5, 296-pound Seaton attends IMG Academy in Florida but is from Washington, D.C. He is the No. 6 prospect from D.C.
South Carolina, whom the Vols will be facing off with on Saturday during Seaton’s visit, is set to host him for an official visit during the Nov. 18 weekend. Colorado, Florida State, Alabama, Florida, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, and South Carolina.
Seaton has already officially visited Alabama, and he is scheduled to officially visit Florida the weekend of Oct. 6. The Vols will also be trying to land an official visit.
Seaton transferred from St. John’s College High School in Washington, D.C., to IMG Academy this spring.
Brian Dohn of 247Sports projects Seaton as a Day 2-3 NFL Draft pick.
“Has frame to play either guard or tackle at college level. Plays left tackle in high school and has legitimate size and length,” Dohn writes. “Saw play on multiple occasions during 2022 season and performed well against strong competition.
“High level athleticism combined with a nasty streak. Is physical and active with hands. Has forceful initial punch. Quick feet allows for impressive lateral movement. Has ability to sink hips and explode into defender. Brings ferocious attitude to line of scrimmage. Once engaged, drives his legs to push defender back. Is difficult to disengage from for high school players. Athleticism shines when asked to pull. Uses proper footwork and gets into gap quickly. Excellent body control and can target linebackers in space. Uses lower body strength well, including to correct within rep.
“Scrapes and gets to second level. Has athleticism to get out and lead on screens. Has nice kick step in pas pro. Strong with initial punch and accurate with hand placement. Is patient in base and rarely reaches. Moves well laterally to handle speed off edge. Shows ability to mirror. Sometimes will block beyond the whistle. Has to continue to remain focused and keep emotions in check during game. Should continue to refine technique. Adding upper body strength is important. Can play early at Top 20 program. Can be an early round NFL draft pick.”
