One of the top prospects in the Volunteer State received a scholarship offer from Tennessee Monday, as receiver Nate Johnson shared this image via Twitter:

Johnson is rated as a four-star prospect by 247Sports and holds offers from Miami, Vanderbilt, Northwestern and South Carolina among others. The wideout prospect has 3,000 receiving yards and 43 receiving touchdowns over the past two prep seasons alone. 

The Vols currently have three receivers committed to its 2016 recruiting class and will likely look to add at least one other outside target, if not two, considering the depth issues that plagued the unit in 2015.
