Tennessee football target Jordan Seaton has set a commitment date. The five-star offensive lineman will announce his college decision on Dec. 7.
Tennessee is in the running for the lineman’s talents along with Alabama, Ohio State, Oregon, Colorado, Florida and Maryland. He has not set an official commitment time yet. He took an official visit to Tennessee during the Nov. 18 weekend for the Georgia game.
Seaton ranks as the No. 15 prospect overall and the No. 1 offensive tackle in the 2024 class. He is also the No. 4 prospect from the state of Florida, where he attends IMG Academy. He is originally from the D.C. area.
The 6-foot-5, 287-pound prospect was also in Knoxville for the Vols’ matchup with South Carolina. He has continued to be a top priority for Tennessee. He is the type of prospect that could enter the rotation as a freshman.
Depth is needed on the offensive line for the Vols, as evidenced by the 2023 season. Seaton could provide that.
Andrew Ivins of 247Sports projects Seaton could become an early-round draft pick.
“One of the few offensive line prospects in the 2024 cycle that has a chance to be a left tackle at the game’s highest levels. Completely reworked his body from the time he first emerged on the recruiting scene as a freshman up in the D.C. area, shedding a ton of bad weight while adding plenty of functional strength in the upper half,” Ivins wrote.
“Updated measurements weren’t available in advance of senior season, but was believed to be hovering somewhere around 6-foot-5, 290 pounds with a 6-foot-10 wingspan to boost. Quick-footed and exceptionally agile for someone of his stature. Constantly looks to finish what he started. Mirrors well in pass protection with a sound, repeatable process. Advanced hand placement not only allows him to saddle up pass rushers and ride them out of the way, but also strike and explode through defenders in run fits.
“Has no issues climbing, and hit 17.7 MPH on a GPS tracking device while pulling in a game. Should be viewed as a potential multi-year starter for a College Football Playoff contender based on what he put on tape as a 12th grader at IMG Academy, which has churned out plenty of high-profile linemen over the years. Must keep his eyes on the prize and embrace the grind as lumps are likely early on in collegiate career, but has the tools to blossom into an early-round NFL Draft pick given length and ability to both anchor and recover.”
