SEC Scores With Kaidon Salter Committing To Vols
CEDAR HILL, TX- Cedar Hill High School junior quarterback Kaidon Salter announced his verbal commitment to the University of Tennessee on Sunday afternoon.
Salter, who visited the Tennessee campus during Spring Break in March, chose the Volunteers over more than a dozen Division I scholarship offers, including Baylor and Auburn.
In making his decisions, Salter looked closely at the academics, the university environment and the coaching staff. His career goal is to become a teacher and coach, preferably at the high school level. “I just love being around football,” Salter said.
The 6-foot-1, 205 pound quarterback led the Longhorns to a 9-3 record and the District 6A-7 Championship last season.

Salter said he plans to graduate from CHHS at semester and head east to Knoxville in January.

The Vols are a traditional power with six national titles, including the most recent in 1998.
