The Golden Eagles aren’t exactly hurting for quarterbacks on their roster. There’s Darian Stone, this year’s projected starter, Jared DavisMatt HambyTrent Thompson, and Brock McCoin.

Add former University of Tennessee preferred walk-on and two-time Tennessee Mr. Football Charlie High to the list.

According to the Herald-Citizen, High committed to the Vols in February, but was offered a place by Tennessee Tech head coach Watson Brown if he ever changed his mind.

It didn’t take very long.

High told the paper that he left because Tennessee Tech offered him a change to play sooner than UT.

“It was nothing against Tennessee,” High said. “I thought Tennessee Tech would be the perfect place for me to play and have a chance to play earlier.”

He added the reason he went to UT was it was his dream as a kid, and he needed to “get it out of my system.”

High has a host of records from his high school days at Christian Academy of Knoxville (CFK). Among them:

  • TSSAA record for career completions (744)
  • TSSAA record for completions in a season (378 in 2012, breaking his own 357 mark in 2011)
  • TSAAA record for season passing yards (5,191)
  • TSAAA record for touchdown passes in a season (65)
  • TSAAA record for total offense in a season (5,364)

That’s not all of them, just a sample, really.

Unsurprisingly, he also led CFK a Class-3A state title during his career.

High has all four years of eligibility remaining.
