The Tennessee Vols received some great news this week when 2023 four-star athlete Cam Seldon announced his commitment to UT.

Seldon, 6-foot-1/220 lbs from Heathsville, VA, is ranked in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 7 athlete in the nation and the No. 2 player in the state of Virginia.

This could be one of the best gets of the offseason for any SEC program.

Seldon is an extremely dynamic player who brings elite speed to Tennessee. The Virginia native runs the 40-yard dash in the 4.2 to 4.3 range. That’s NFL-level speed.

The exciting thing about Seldon is that he can be used in a variety of ways. He could play on either side of the ball, or he could line up at wide receiver/running back. The possibilities are limitless.

247Sports recruiting analyst Gabe Brooks offered a breakdown of Seldon’s game on Thursday that included some impressive compliments for the talented recruit.

Brooks called Seldon “one of the best pure football players” in the 2023 recruiting class.

Here are Brooks’ full comments:

Seldon is one of the cycle’s most intriguing prospects, in my personal opinion, for several reasons. First is obviously what you see on the field. Seldon absolutely dominates small-school competition for his Heathsville (Va.) Northumberland squad, which competes in Virginia Class 1. In the 6-foot-1 to 6-foot-2, 220-pound neighborhood, Seldon is the fastest and one of the biggest players on the field at any given moment.

That small-school, rural background also adds to the intrigue, especially considering that playing at a small program allows for myriad positional duties. Whether it’s receiver, running back, quarterback, edge, linebacker, safety, or in the return game, Seldon impacts games in the sheer variety ways few players can.

It sounds like the Vols got a player that’s a perfect fit in Josh Heupel’s up-tempo offense. Tennessee’s offense was dynamic last season without a bunch of four-star and five-star players. Just imagine how good they’ll be once Heupel gets more players like Seldon on campus.

Vols fans are going to have a lot of fun watching this offense over the next several years.
