Salter has been committed to Tennessee since May 10th, and he told VR2 on SI at the time of his commitment, "Tennessee is turning it around. This 2021 class is definitely bringing in some fire for Tennessee. The program that they have, and just being coached by those coaches would be a great experience. The coaching staff they have will be able to work you and get you ready the next level, which is the NFL. Those coaches know what it takes to get there. It all just came together."
Salter said on Tennessee putting forth more effort than others during his decision-making process, " Tennessee, Coach Weinke, and Coach Chaney told me I was the only quarterback they wanted in the 2021 class. People were trying to commit, but they were waiting on me to see where I was going. That is just real love. It shows that they really wanted me."
