In-state prospect Darion Williamson announces he has decommitted from Tennessee
Tennessee’s 2020 recruiting class just got smaller as Brownsville native Darion Williamson announced on Monday that he is officially decommitted from Jeremy Pruitt’s Volunteer program.
“I am officially de-committed from The University of Tennessee…. God has an alternate route,” Williamson posted.
This news shouldn’t come as much of a surprise, as Williamson did not sign with the Volunteers during the Early Signing Period despite being committed to Tennessee dating back to July. In recent weeks, Williamson took official visits to Florida State and Arkansas.
Taking this news into consideration, the Razorbacks could be in sitting in a good position to land the 6-foot-3, 190-pound receiver from Tennessee. However, it should be noted that Williamson’s primary recruiter for Tennessee was former running back’s coach David Johnson, who is now at Florida State.
The Volunteers now don’t hold a single commitment in the 2020 recruiting cycle heading into National Signing Day but have signed 21 recruits and landed transfers Cade Mays from Georgia, Velus Jones Jr. from USC and Miles Jones from Nebraska. The Jones both play receiver and Tennessee signed three high school players that could play receiver for the Volunteers in 2020.
Tennessee’s 2020 class remains ranked No. 16 nationally and No. 7 in the SEC following this news.
