Tennessee made one of the recruiting coups of the year when two Duncan (S.C.) Byrnes standouts, defensive linemen Brandon Willis and Corey Miller, committed to the Volunteers over the weekend.
The two are close friends.
Both are among the top six players on our SC Top 25 Prospects list.
Willis is No.2, and was also considering Florida State, North Carolina, California and UCLA.
He is 6-foot-4 and 255 pounds, and could bulk up further to play defensive tackle in college. As a junior, he had 144 tackles, including 13 sacks.
Miller, ranked sixth on our list, had been a long-time commitment to Florida State, and his loss is a stinging blow to the Seminoles. The DE is 6-4 and 230 pounds, with 4.69 speed in the 40. He had 105 tackles, with eight sacks and 34 QB hurries as a junior.
The pair are key reasons that Byrnes is favored to win yet another state title.
