Talented JUCO WR JaVonta Payton decommits from Ole Miss, could be eying Tennessee
The Ole Miss Rebels lost a big piece of their 2019 recruiting class on Monday night, dropping their total number of commits to 26.
The departing player is 3-star JUCO WR JaVonta Payton, a Nashville native who currently plays for Northwest Mississippi Community College.
As you can see below, Payton announced his decision to decommit from the Rebels via Twitter on Monday night:

Per the 247Sports composite, Payton is the No. 3 JUCO wide receiver in the class of 2019 and the No. 5 overall JUCO player from the state of Tennessee.
Payton is a big-time Tennessee target, too, so we’ll have to wait and see if he ends up committing to Jeremy Pruitt and the Vols in the near future.
