The Tennessee football program welcomed six more Vols on National Signing Day to increase its 2018 signing class to 20 newcomers.

"We're excited about the 20 young men that we've added to this class," Tennessee football head coach Jeremy Pruitt said at Wednesday afternoon's press conference. "These guys are going to lay the foundation for the next four to five years. These are the guys that wanted to be a part of what we're trying to get done, and we're excited to have them."

The 2018 class features players from Tennessee (nine), Georgia (four), California (three), Florida, South Carolina, Nevada and Pennsylvania.

Pruitt and his staff signed 14 recruits, including seven early enrollees, during the Early Signing Period in December.
