Impact Report: Tennessee Lands Massive Mauler in OL Vysen Lang

Moments ago, Tennesee landed the commitment of 2023 Pike Road (Ala.) offensive lineman Vysen Lang over LSU, Auburn and Texas. Lang went into detail about his decision with Volunteer Country. This impact report shows what Lang brings to Rocky Top.

Background

The 6-5, 330lbs offensive tackle has had one of the quieter recruitments in this cycle, but it is not because schools didn’t want him. This is who he really is and how he handled it. Pike Road may sound familiar because of Quinshon Judkins, a sensational freshman running back. Lang was a mentor to Judkins at Pike Road and he is the one who has made the transition for Judkins this season. Lang made two trips to Tennessee in recent weeks, stopping at the Alabama and Florida games. This sealed the deal as he chose the Vols over 25 other Division 1 offers.

Fit

Lang is versatile, but he excels as a run blocker. He is a road grader who completes his blocks at all levels. His fit is likely to be on the right side Tennessee’s offensive line, either as a guard or tackle. He can play either, but he will likely cross-train both as he goes to Rocky Top and Glen Elarbee to continue to develop and evaluate his game. Lang is a happy, smiling face until the lights go out. Then, he adopts a new personality that fits in with the identity Tennessee’s offensive lines have taken on this season.

Impact Rating

This is another key win for Glen Elarbee on the recruiting trail and adds to an impressive offensive line haul. This recruitment saw Texas, Auburn, and LSU all doing well. It is not easy to find a prospect that fits your culture, addresses a need and has potential to be a valuable recruit in Alabama. This is another great recruiting addition for the Vols.
