Senior punter Paxton Brooks of Airport High School in West Columbia, S.C., announced Thursday night on his Twitter account that he has committed to Tennessee.
“I’m proud to say that I have received a full scholarship to the University of Tennessee and have decided that I’m 100% committed! #GoVols,” he tweeted.
The 6-foot-5, 170-pound Brooks chose the Vols over scholarship offers from N.C. State and Wake Forest, giving Tennessee its 21st commitment for the 2018 class and a possible heir apparent to senior punter Trevor Daniel.
Brooks, who has accepted an invitation to play in the 2018 Under Armour All-America Game, is ranked the nation’s No. 2 punter in the 2018 class by Kohl’s Professional Camps.
