Tyler Redmond was in Knoxville to watch Tennessee football take on Georgia. He saw enough, and announced his commitment to the Vols on Sunday night.
Redmond is a class of 2025 defensive back. He ranks as the No. 507 prospect overall and the No. 53 cornerback by 247Sports. Out of Milton High School in Alpharetta, Georgia, Redmond is the No. 54 prospect from the Peach State.
He chose Tennessee over NC State and Ohio State. Redmond holds 10 scholarship offers.
Redmond released a set of top schools on Oct. 1, which included the Vols as well as Ohio State, Texas A&M, NC State and UCF. Redmond joins fellow Milton teammates, and defensive backs, Dylan Lewis and Shamar Arnoux as Tennessee commitments. Running back Justin Baker is also committed in the Vols’ 2025 class, and he is from Buford (Ga.) High School.
Redmond transferred from St. Francis Academy to Buford ahead of his junior season. He visited Tennessee in January as well as twice during spring practice. He has also been to Knoxville for two game days.
The 6-foot-1, 169-pound defensive back adds to the Vols priorities in the 2025 class. Those priorities are rebuilding the defensive back room. As evidenced on Saturday, when walk-on Will Brooks had to play due to injury, the Vols need more depth in the secondary.
Redmond has experience in high school playoff football in Georgia. The three-star totaled 41 tackles, 14 pass-break ups and three interceptions during the 2022 season.
Tennessee’s 2025 class is made up of three defensive backs and a running back. All of the committed prospects rank as three-star prospects. 247Sports ranks the class as the No. 12 class nationally, and the No. 5 class in the SEC.
Still early in the 2025 cycle, head coach Josh Heupel is building depth and building relationships inside Georgia.
