Rivals100 RB Creer headed to Tennessee

All the talk and rumors surrounding Rivals100 running back Lennon Creer's recruiting process have finally come to an end with his official announcement on Thursday.

The 6-foot-1, 202-pounder ended the speculation made his official announcement on Thursday morning at his high school and announced that he will be a Vol.

"Tennessee was where I felt the most comfortable," Creer said. "They have a great recruiting class."

The four-star Tatum, Texas running back, had been on several surprising visits including a late one to Alabama in the middle of this past week. He had previously visited Tennessee and Oklahoma.

"I made my decision last night," Creer said. "I talked with my family. They talked to me about Alabama, but it was just Tennessee."

Rated as the nation's No. 6 running back, Creer rushed for more than 2,000 yards during his junior and senior seasons. He also totaled 52 touchdowns between both seasons.

Creer was recruited by Tennessee wide receivers coach Trooper Taylor.

"Trooper Taylor was a big factor," Creer said. "We got close, he was like family."

The East Texas running back was rated as the state's No. 8 overall prospect and No. 57 in the Rivals100.

Creer will be joined at Tennessee by Tatum teammate Darnius Moore. The three-star athlete also officially announced his intentions to play for the Vols at the press conference.
