Four Reasons Why The Vols Landed a new OL commit

- Advertisement -

Once again, Tennessee’s family feel was a big part of their most recent recruiting success. However, it wasn’t being a part of the family that was so important to Antoni Kade Ogumoro. It was treating his entire family like their own.

Think Ogumoro was a priority for Tennessee? Well, check out his hometown. Here are four things to know about Ogumoro’s recruitment:

The Vols took an extra step in recruiting Ogumoro

Tennessee’s efforts shouldn’t be overlooked as they landed the 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive lineman from Elgin (Ok.) High School. The Vols brought in specialists to learn more about Ogumoro’s special needs brother and what they could do to make a home for him as well. That may have happened before, but I haven’t heard of it before.

Ogumoro is a consensus three-star prospect

Ogumoro definitely has the size to be a top interior offensive lineman, as he was recruited to be. However, no recruiting profile has him rated higher than a three-star prospect. Ogumoro is rated the No. 494 prospect in the nation, the No. 30 interior offensive lineman in the country and the ninth-best prospect in Oklahoma.

Oklahoma was the main rival

There was more competition than just Tennessee and Oklahoma for Ogumoro, although they were definitely the top two schools in contention. Kansas State and Oklahoma State were the main competition.
