Cade Mays is coming home.

If you missed the big news out of Athens on Wednesday, well, the other big news after starting quarterback Jake Fromm decided he will forego his senior season at Georgia to declare early for the 2020 NFL Draft, Mays is leaving Georgia and has entered the NCAA transfer portal.

According to Mark Schlabach of ESPN, there will be no second recruitment for Mays — he’s already made his decision when it comes to his next stop. Cade Mays will finally be a Vol.

This is quite the turn of events on Rocky Top as Mays was the cornerstone of Tennessee’s 2018 recruiting class for over a year before the end of the Butch Jones era came crashing down. Despite the fact he was a legacy to Tennessee, his father Kevin Mays played for Phillip Fulmer on Rocky Top and the family lives in Knoxville, Cade signed to play for Kirby Smart at Georgia following Jeremy Pruitt’s hire at Tennessee.

Now with former Georgia offensive line coach Sam Pittman off to Arkansas, things apparently changed quickly for Cade.

The Vols recently signed Cade’s younger brother, Cooper Mays as a four-star member of the program’s 2020 recruiting class and now the two brothers will be reunited after sharing the same high school field at Knox Catholic back in 2017.

Unless Cade receives a waiver, he will have to sit out the 2020 season due to NCAA transfer rules.

Cade Mays was a five-star prospect and the nation’s No. 3 offensive tackle according to 247Sports Composite Rankings in the 2018 recruiting cycle.
