Kaidon Salter spurns Bruins, commits to Volunteers

Salter announced his decision to commit to Tennessee over UCLA and others on Mother’s Day

It apparently means more for Kaidon Salter, who announced his decision to commit to the Tennessee Volunteers over UCLA on Mother’s Day, May 10, 2020.

Salter was one of three dual-threat quarterbacks offered by UCLA this offseason but largely represented the best available quarterback prospect that the Bruins were in the running for.

Salter hails from Cedar Hill, Texas and represents the 11th commit to Tennessee and head coach Jeremy Pruitt over the past two weeks. The Volunteers are on a hot streak and Salter became the most recent player to spurn some out-west schools and instead head to Tennessee.

That now puts more pressure likely on Miller Moss and Shedeur Sanders, the remaining four-star targets at quarterback that have been offered by UCLA this year. And also don’t rule out more pressure being applied to Kajiya Hollawayne, the 19th-best dual-threat quarterback in the country for the class of 2021.

Salter represented what would have likely been a cornerstone piece to their recruiting class that currently stands at just two commits.

Expect to hear a lot more from Moss, Sanders and Hollawayne in the weeks to come.
