Four-star defensive end Jayden Loftin committed to Tennessee’s 2025 recruiting class on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-4, 250-pound prospect from Somerville, N.J., is ranked as the No. 27 edge rusher in the nation by the 247 Sports composite.

Loftin took an official visit to Knoxville last weekend and told Rivals.com that the “family aspect of everything is what really stood out” for him with coach Josh Heupel’s program.

Loftin took an official visit to Wisconsin last month and had visits scheduled for Syracuse and Penn State. He also received offers from Nebraska, Boston College, Georgia Tech, Kansas, Michigan State, Minnesota, Pitt, Rutgers, South Carolina and others, per Yahoo Sports.
