McCollough committed to Tennessee in August and will join fellow Volunteer commit Wayna Morris at the Under Armour Game. Tennessee has always stood out to him and he’s not wavering.

“I’m 110% Volunteer. The recruitment process is done. I took my one and only official visit to Tennessee and I’ll sign with them in December.”

The Volunteer’s currently have the 16-ranked recruiting class in 2019.

McCollough looks forward to his chance to play along side the rest of the top football players in the country once he gets down to Orlando.

“I’m looking forward to competing with the best. Just go out there and do what I do and put on for the city.”

The Under Armour All-America Game is scheduled for Jan. 3 at Camping World Stadium in Orlando, Fla. and will be televised live on ESPN2 at 6 p.m. EST.
