Isaiah Neyor, transferring Wyoming WR, decommits from Tennessee and signs with new school
Isaiah Neyor had Tennessee fans excited for what he could bring to the Vols’ offense in 2022, and it’s easy to see why.
The transferring Wyoming receiver was one of the best big-play threats in the country last year for the Cowboys, recording 44 catches for 878 yards (20 yards per catch) and 12 touchdowns.
It’s easy to see how that would play well in a Josh Heupel offense that loves to go fast and take deep shots, right? Well, in the words of the great Lee Corso, not so fast, my friend.
On Thursday, Neyor took to Twitter to reveal he wouldn’t be heading to Rocky Top. Instead, he tweeted that he had signed with the Texas Longhorns:
That’s a big recruiting win for Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns. Meanwhile, returning Tennessee QB Hendon Hooker won’t have the big-play threat he was probably excited to start working with this spring.
We’ll see how Neyor fares in Austin, but Vol fans will be wondering what could have been with Neyor, Hooker and Heupel in 2022.
