'25 WI CB Tre Poteat (Tennessee commit)

High Character Kid...BRING IT!


The Scout on Poteat​

“Let me say this first of all, he is a great young man and a great leader,” Verona Aread Head Coach Andrew Riley told Volquest. “He is a great dude. On the field, he is a field tilter for us. Wherever he is on the field, the field is going to tilt that way a little bit. The quarterback is going to notice which side he is on, he is going to be a little more nervous about it. To me, it is his confidence (that stands out) in what he does. He works hard off the field in the off-season, and his instincts and knowledge of the game put him in the right place to make some exceptional plays. All of the work he has put into the weight room and speed work allows him to make the special play. He plays receiver for us and returns kicks and punts for us. He is just dynamic. Last year, he scored in every way he could except a fumble return for a touchdown. Wherever he is, he is a big difference-maker for us. He helps his teammates out and holds them accountable, too.”

What this commitment means for Tennessee​

Tennessee has had significant interest in Poteat for several months, and when he decided he was not going to attend Iowa State, the school where his father currently serves as defensive backs coach, the Vols became a very real option.

Tennessee now has three cornerback prospects committed in the class, in Dylan Lewis, Tyler Redmond and Poteat, however, the Vols view all three as players who can play multiple roles across the secondary. This gives Tim Banks and Willie Martinez plenty of versatile options to move around in the coming years.

The focus now for Tennessee will be adding a pledge from four-star cornerback Onis Konanbanny, who was also on campus this weekend for his official visit.

Boom and he has pro bloodlines because his father played for the Jets and Browns.
