Brighton defensive tackle Charles Mosley took only one official visit and it was to the right place in his mind.

On Monday, Mosley committed to Tennessee the only place he took a visit to.

Mosley (6-5, 350) chose the Vols over Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Mississippi State, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Arkansas State and MTSU.

"He is a really good person that is a leader on the field and in the locker room," Brighton head coach Will Wolfe said. "He has so much potential there's no telling what he could do on field in a couple of years."

He becomes the 34th commitment for UT coach Butch Jones and joins Josh Malone (Station Camp WR), Jalen Hurd (Beech RB), Todd Kelly Jr. (Knoxville Webb DB), Derek Barnett (Brentwood Academy TE/DE), Rashaan Gaulden (Independence DB), Vic Wharton (Independence DB) and Aaron Medley (Marshall County K) as in state players committed to the Vols.

Three In State Players Commit to Mocs
McCallie wide receiver/defensive back
C.J. Fritz has decided to stay home and play college football.

Fritz who was the leading receiver for the Blue Tornado this season has committed to the hometown Chattanooga Mocs.

"Officially committed to play football at the University of Tenn-Chattanooga!!!!," Fritz said via his Twitter account.

Fritz (5-10, 175) chose the Mocs over offers from Kennesaw State, Campbell and UAB.

He led the Blue Tornado in receiving catching 32 passes for 462 yards and four touchdowns while making 41 tackles, intercepting three passes and had eight passes defended.

The Mocs also got commitments from Fritz's teammate Cam Walker and Clarksville Northeast athlete Montrell Pardue.

Walker (6-4, 245) played both the offensive and defensive lines for McCallie this year and chose the Mocs over an offer from UAB.

He registered 13 tackles including three sacks and 3.5 tackles for loss.

Pardue helped lead his team to the Class 5A Semifinals and an 8-6 before getting beat by district rival and eventual state champion Henry County.

Pardue rushed for 1,312 yards and passed for 896 yards with 25 total touchdowns while making 103 tackles from his linebacking spot.

He chose the Mocs over offers from Navy, Liberty and Eastern Kentucky.

"We are really excited for Montrell as he has turned himself into a great player through hard work and dedication," Northeast coach Issac Shelby said. "We wish him the best of luck at Chattanooga."

Pardue played quarterback in the Eagles Spread Option offense but will probably play either safety or linebacker in college.
