Tennessee continues to put the finishing touches on an outstanding 2014 recruiting class. The Volunteers welcomed another promising prospect into the mix Monday when mammoth defensive tackle Charles Mosley accepted the Volunteers' scholarship offer.

The 6'5", 350-pound Brighton High School (Tenn.) product proclaimed his pledge on Twitter.

Mosley, a consensus 4-star recruit, committed to Tennessee less than three weeks after spending an official visit in Knoxville. It was his third visit with the Volunteers during the 2013 season.

He had several suitors in the SEC and spent time at Alabama and Ole Miss since the start of training camp. Mosley also holds offers from Ole Miss, Auburn, Georgia and Vanderbilt.

He moves well at his size and presents options along the defensive front's interior. Mosley is a dominant run-stuffer who is still developing his technique.

The commitment comes three days later than originally thought. Mosley initially planned to announce his intentions at school on Dec. 6 but the decision was postponed due to inclement weather.

There's a possibility the Volunteers haven't yet determined where Mosley will line up. He may be a fit on the offensive line, where Tennessee could use an infusion of talent at guard.

He is the 34th commit in head coach Butch Jones' latest recruiting haul. The Volunteers' group of incoming prospects is presently ranked second nationally by 247Sports.

Mosley is the biggest of the bunch and joins a dynamic group of linemen. Defensive ends Derek Barnett and Dewayne Hendrix are each 4-star prospects, along with offensive tackle Dontavius Blair.
