Defensive tackle Kahlil McKenzie, a highly regarded NCAAF prospect, finally announced his commitment to the Tennessee Volunteers on Thursday. 

 

 

The 6-foot-4, 340-pound lineman is a four-star recruit out of De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif., according to Yahoo! Sports' Rivals.

He ranks as the nation's No. 31 overall prospect in 2015, and sixth in the state of California.

McKenzie had scholarship offers from 24 Division-I schools, including Florida, Ole Miss, USC, Cal, Miami, Oregon and Wisconsin to name a few. 

Perhaps influential in his decision is that Kahlil is the son of Raiders general manager Reggie McKenzie, who also played on the defensive side of the ball at Tennessee. 

It won't become official until National Signing Day in February, but pending unforeseen circumstances, Kahlil McKenzie will join his father's alma mater.
