A new Tiger recruiting class has been announced, and the Tigers are joining the ranks.
The school announced on Friday that it has added three players from the Tigers’ 2018 class, including a linebacker who previously played for the team.
The five-star recruit is the first Tigers player to sign with the program.
The news comes as the Tigers continue to work to recruit another linebacker to join the class.
Freshman linebacker Zachary Johnson, a three-star prospect, has committed to the Tigers.
Johnson is expected to begin training camp in mid-July.
The 6-foot-1, 218-pounder is expected be a key piece for the Tigers, which will also be working on a potential linebacker to fill the position vacated by defensive end Derrick Henry.
The Tigers’ new recruiting class is a total of 14 players.
