This week we have a special interview with an offensive lineman. While the skill positions and defense get all the love, I thought it was about time to bring some attention to the true workhorse stars in the trenches. Let’s dive into Tennessee commit, Kyree Miller.

Kyree committed to the Vols less than 48 hours after he received an offer from Tennessee. In an interview with GoVols247, he said “Their coaches, they really showed that they really care about their players on and off the field — not just about, ‘Oh, they’re football players,’ but they care about them as a person and show them respect as a person instead of (just from) a player perspective,”.

He made an official visit the week the Vols played UAB, for the homecoming game. Kyree said the visit “was actually pretty great” and “I really like them. They talk about support. They talk about how they like their players, how they want their players to do better on and off the field, and just keeping them going, keeping them going every day, pushing them harder to do better every day. And their academic levels is pretty nice. I like it.”.
