Tennessee earned a win on the field against Kentucky Saturday, but it has suffered a loss on the recruiting trail.

Chase Rogers, a 3-star tight end prospect for the Class of 2017, announced his decommitment from the Vols on Twitter Sunday afternoon.

The 6-foot-3, 238-pound tight end from Bay Saint Louis, Miss., is rated the No. 33 prospect at his position for 2017 and the No. 17 prospect from the state of Mississippi. The Vols recently added a commitment from Florida tight end James Brown and also hold a commitment from LaTrell Bumphus, who plays both defensive line and tight end in high school.

With the loss of Rogers, Tennessee is now down to 26 total commitments in its 2017 recruiting class.
