Lang (6-foot-4, 335 pounds) has played left tackle but is expected to move inside to guard in college. Either way, he was one of the best remaining offensive linemen in his class. Lang is ranked No. 51 among interior linemen in his class and No. 26 in the state, by 247 Sports.
Lang had visited Tennessee twice this season and came away impressed with their treatment of their recruits, for rivals.
“The Tennessee fan base has the craziest, sweetest fans in the world. During the games, they’re all crazy and pissed off, and outside of the game, they all come up to me and say, “Hi, welcome to Knoxville,” and they’re really nice. I connect with players in the locker room and coach (Josh) Heupel, (Alex) Golesh and (Glenn) Ellarby are family-oriented coaches who treat their players like family.”
