Tennessee Football: Vols Land Tulane WR Chris Brazzell Out of Transfer Portal

- Advertisement -

Tennessee football picked up a commitment from Tulane wide receiver Chris Brazzell II on Thursday night. Brazzell was one of the most sought-after transfers in the portal.

Matt Zenitz of 247Sports first reported the pickup for the Vols.

Brazzell tallied 711 yards and five touchdowns as a freshman for Tulane. At 6-foot-5 and 195 pounds, he gives highly-touted quarterback Nico Iamaleava a large target to hit.

In the transfer portal, Brazzell ranks as the No. 54 and the No. 11 wide receiver. Out of high schools, 247Sports Composite rankings had Brazzell as the No. 1288 prospect overall and the No. 170 receiver. He graduated from Midland Legacy High School in Midland, Texas.

Wide receiver was a position of priority for Tennessee in the portal. The Vols lose Ramel Keyton who is out of eligibility. Bru McCoy’s future is up in the air with the Vols.

Last year, Tennessee landed Dont’e Thornton Jr. from Oregon in the transfer portal. He was also a lengthy receiver target, but he did not pan out until later in the year. After suffering an injury, Tennessee’s depth was tested in the portal.

Thorton has also not announced his future, but he will likely return to Tennessee. The wide receiver room looks to still be youthful. Kaleb Webb and Chas Nimrod flashed during the 2023 season, and freshman Nate Leacock did not play very often.

The 2024 class also brings in five-star Mike Matthews and four-star Braylon Staley. Both are highly touted incoming-freshman that are expected to make an early impact for the Vols next season.

Brazzell’s commitment comes after a successful Early Signing Day for Tennessee. Here’s a full look at the class.
