 (Times Free Press) - Tennessee picked up the 14th commitment for its 2014 football recruiting class Thursday.

And though there are 250 days until signing day, the Volunteers and first-year coach Butch Jones currently are No. 1 in Rivals.com's team rankings.

Defensive end Joe Henderson, from Shaker Heights High School in Cleveland, Ohio, publicly announced his commitment less than two weeks after visiting Tennessee. The 6-foot-4, 222-pounder is rated as a four-star prospect according to 247sports.com.

Henderson, the first defensive lineman in the Vols' class, had scholarship offers also from Arkansas, Kentucky, Ole Miss, Louisville, West Virginia, Wisconsin and Michigan State, among others.
