This one sort of came out of nowhere, but 3-star defensive tackle Kurott Garland of Conyers, Georgia has signed with Tennessee.

Relying again on the 247Sports Composite rankings, Garland is the nation’s No. 60 strongside defensive end and the No. 117 player in the state of Georgia. He had offers from Tulane, Coastal Carolina, and Eastern Kentucky.
Regardless of the offer list, Jeremy Pruitt is apparently high on the guy:
Jeremy Pruitt told me defensive line signee Kurott Garland reminded him of former Alabama defensive lineman Dalvin Tomlinson when Tomlinson came out of high school. “I think Tomlinson was the last guy we took in that class, and he ended up being a great player,” Pruitt said.
