Tennessee greatly expanded its 2023 recruit class on Thursday when four-star athlete Cameron Seldon announced his commitment to the Volunteers live at CBS Sports HQ. Seldon chose Tennessee over Maryland and Penn State to give the program its 15th commitment of the class.

Seldon is the fourth top 100 player in the Tennessee league, ranked 11th nationally, and he could play at any number of next-level positions. Though the receiver is considered likely fit, Seldon does whatever it takes for his high school team and could also fit as a next-level fullback or linebacker.

At 6-foot-1 and 220 pounds, the elite speedster played multiple positions on both sides of the ball while returning kicks as a junior at Northumberland High School in Heathsville, Virginia last season. He is considered the No. 2 from Virginia in the Class of 2023 and is ranked a No. 3 athlete by 247Sports.

Here is Seldon’s full assessment from 247Sports Midlands Region Recruiting Analyst Gabe Brooks:

Strong physique with the size to be a receiver or linebacker. Sizing isn’t verified by measurements, but by personal rating meshes with a listed 6-foot-2, 220-pounds. Has strength throughout the frame. Has a multisport profile as a basketball player and Class 1A state champion in the 100 yards. Holds the school record of 10.74 seconds. Dominant high school player at a small school in northern Virginia. High speed open field explosive to end open field games. Grabs running back, quarterback, and receiver on offense. Supple athlete with the ability to churn out YAC. Good ball skills. Is good off the line of scrimmage and gets into the route quickly. Comfortable playing in traffic. Has speed to get behind the defensive. Demonstrates ability to close a ball in mid-air. Ready to be physically at the top of the routes and challenge for 50-50 balls. Turning, burst, and short-range speed are best demonstrated when playing edge or blitzing as a linebacker. Affects the game at every stage.

Seldon visited Maryland, Tennessee and Penn State in June, and Penn State was viewed as a favorite for much of that week. But the Volunteers finished strongly, and coach Josh Heupel will have a chance to make Seldon a star as he develops a more position-specific technique after playing such a diverse role in high school.
