Tennessee flips Sunshine State prospect
Tennessee is just setting the stage for a wild National Signing Day around the country.
The Vols flipped Miami cornerback commit Tyler Byrd, who also happens to be a one-time Florida Gators commit. Tennessee dipped down into the Sunshine State (Naples, Fla.) to land Byrd, and he became the Vols’ 18 commitment for the class of 2016.
