Just one game into his senior season, Nashville (TN) Montgomery Bell Academy offensive tackle Preston Bailey is ready to end his recruitment.

Despite expressing in early August that he intends to wait on naming his favorites until he has taken his official visits, Bailey has clearly had a change of heart and has made his decision without taking any official visits.

One of the most highly recruited seniors in the state of Tennessee, the four-star is expected to announce his commitment to the University of Tennessee at his high school in Nashville on Wednesday at 11 am (CT).

Bailey has entertained interest from such national heavyweights as Miami and Michigan as well as several SEC programs but has always had the Volunteers near the top of his list.

With a commitment to Tennessee, Bailey would join his teammate, fullback Ben Bartholomew, as the second Tennessee commitment from Montgomery Bell Academy in the 2008 class.
