The Tennessee Vols received some great news on Monday as four-star cornerback Jordan Matthews announced his commitment to UT.
Matthews, 6-foot/165 lbs from Baton Rouge, LA, committed to Tennessee over Texas and Michigan.
The Vols’ latest commit is ranked in 247Sports’ composite rankings as the No. 15 cornerback in the nation and the No. 9 player in the state of Louisiana.
Matthews announced his commitment to Tennessee while using a hat in a very unique way.
The Baton Rouge native opened a box that had a light emitting from it. He, along with with the folks on stage, stared into the box in a moment filled with suspense before finally reaching in and grabbing a Tennessee hat and bellowing “Go Vols Baby, Go Vols” to the gathered crowd.

It’s tough to be unique anymore when it comes to commitment ceremonies — we’ve pretty much seen it all at this point. But Matthews gets an A+ for his efforts on Monday.
I’m sure Tennessee is hoping he’s just as creative on the field when he gets to Rocky Top.
