Omillio Agard lists as a four-star cornerback according to the composite rankings from both 247Sports and On3 Sports. Interestingly, though, both platforms have Agard as a three-star prospect individually. Rivals and ESPN both have Agard as a four-star prospect.

According to 247Sports’ composite rankings, Agard lists as the No. 255 overall player in the class, the No. 22 cornerback in the class of 2024, and the No. 5 player from the state of Pennsylvania.

The 5-foot-10, 165-pound defensive back currently plays for St. Joseph’s Prep School in Philadelphia, PA.

Josh Heupel’s Tennessee program was the 9th team to offer Agard a scholarship back on April 21, 2021. Agard then took an unofficial visit to Tennessee in June of 2022 before announcing a Top 10 on Aug. 1, 2022.

Agard’s initial Top 10 featured Alabama, Clemson, Georgia, Miami, Michigan, Notre Dame, Penn State, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Texas A&M.

According to On3 Sports’ recruiting prediction machine, Tennessee is currently being given the third-highest odds to land the Philadelphia baller. The predictions currently have Penn State leading the way at 35 percent, followed by Michigan at 15.7 percent and Tennessee at 13.5 percent. Clemson and Alabama trail Tennessee at 11.2 percent and 5.9 percent, respectively.

Tennessee currently has three standout commitments lined up in the 2024 class already. The Vols’ class boasts four-star athlete/edge rusher Jonathan Echols, four-star Nashville cornerback Kaleb Beasley, and three-star Chattanooga defensive lineman Carson Gentle.

The Vols’ 2024 class ranks No. 11 nationally and No. 5 in the SEC behind No. 1 LSU, No. 2 Georgia, No. 4 Alabama, and No. 9 Florida.
