Tennyson is a 5'11", 175 pound target. The high school junior chose Vanderbilt over North Carolina, Michigan State, Pittsburgh, West Virginia, and Tennessee. His explosive speedy could make him an immediate vertical threat for the Commodores. Though he could stand to add more weight, the young wideout is still growing into his body and could eventually become a topline WR for Derek Mason and offensive coordinator Andy Ludwig.

Tennyson is the third member of the Vanderbilt recruiting class of 2016. He will join quarterback Deuce Wallace and safety Austen Quillen on the team's roster next fall.
