Tennessee Eagerly Awaiting Mike Matthews Arrival

Tennessee Football: Vols Lead Race for 5-Star WR Mike Matthews

2024 five-star wide receiver Mike Matthews (Lilburn, Ga.) has been committed to the Tennessee Volunteers since the summer.A few weeks out from early national signing day, the Vols have done most of the work in their 2024 signing class. They’ve landed several blue-chip players that the coaching staff thinks can impact this roster early. One of those players is five-star wide receiver Mike Matthews.

Matthews is around 6-2 and 180 pounds and plays his prep football for Parkview High School in Lilburn, Georgia. Matthews is currently committed to playing in the Under Armour All-American Bowl and was recently named the Region 4-7A Offensive Player of the Year. Matthews finalized his decision on July 19th after considering multiple schools, including Tennessee, Clemson, Georgia, and USC. He was fully locked in with the Vols moving forward after his decision and never gave signs of flipping or decommitting.

Matthews is coming into a situation with a lot of question marks. Tennessee still awaits the decisions of many players, including Bru McCoy and Dont’e Thornton. The Vols have also seen a bit of struggle from some wide-outs throughout the season. Tennessee’s potential wide receiver room includes many names with high potential.

  • Bru McCoy (Barring return)
  • Squirrel White
  • Dont’e Thornton (Barring return)
  • Chas Nimrod
  • Kaleb Webb
  • Nathan Leacock
  • Mike Matthews
  • Braylon Staley
