The All Vol Call in Show
Cameron Seldon committed to Josh Heupel and Tennessee on July 7th, 2022. The four-star athlete was the number-one player in Virginia and chose the Vols over Penn State and Maryland.
Seldon, who stands six feet two inches tall, and weighs 222 pounds, can play anywhere on the field. He has the strength to play linebacker and the stature and speed to play receiver, but he will carry the ball for the Volunteers at running back.
Seldon rushed for 551 yards and 11 touchdowns as a senior in high school, while also catching 18 passes for 365 yards and five touchdowns. He's a threat in the return game, having scored four touchdowns on three kickoffs and one punt.
Despite all those accolades and attributes mentioned, Seldon will have to compete for touches this season, as Tennessee's backfield is as loaded as it’s been in some time. Carries will have to be shared by Jabari Small, Jaylen Wright, Dylan Sampson, and Seldon. Having such issues should be viewed as nothing but a positive for Josh Heupel and Tennessee.
Seldon's speed, size, and vision make him an ideal running back in the SEC. He has also been timed running a 4.2-second 40-yard dash. At 222 lbs., moving at that speed, you would be hard pressed to find a linebacker or defensive back in the SEC that would have an easy time bringing down that load on their own. Seldon's future is so bright for Tennessee, he's going to need triple tinted sunglasses. Buckle up, Vol fans..
