Tennessee suffers its first decommitment following Jeremy Pruitt's firing
That didn’t take long.
Less than an hour after Tennessee made the decision to fire Jeremy Pruitt following an internal investigation into alleged recruiting violations within the program, the Volunteers have already suffered a decommitment.
Four-star receiver Jordan Mosley from McGill Toolen High School of Mobile, Ala., announced his decision to part ways with the Volunteers on Monday. Mosley was the highest-rated prospect committed but unsigned in Tennessee’s 2021 recruiting class.
“First off, I would like to thank Coach Pruitt and Coach Tee Martin for giving me the opportunity to further my education and athletic career at the next level,” Mosley shared. “After further conversations with God, family, and coaches, I have made a decision to decommit from the University of Tennessee and explore other options. This wasn’t easy to do but it’s a business decision that I feel is best for me.”
The 6-foot, 190-pound Alabama native was rated as the No. 52 receiver in the nation and the No. 9 overall prospect in the nation for the 2021 recruiting cycle by 247Sports Composite Rankings.
Tennessee signed 19 prospects during the Early Signing Period and now have two unsigned prospects committed to the program’s 2021 recruiting class. Those prospects are athlete Roc Taylor from Oxford, Ala., and offensive lineman Colby Smith of West End, North Carolina.
