The Tennessee Vols lost a member of their 2019 recruiting class on Sunday, but it didn’t come as a shock to anyone who closely follows UT recruiting.
2019 four-star athlete Te’Cory Couch, 5-foot-10/150 pounds from Hollywood, FL, flipped from Tennessee to Michigan on Sunday.
Couch originally committed to the Vols last summer when Butch Jones was still Tennessee’s head coach.
Confirmed that Michigan flipped DB Te’Cory Couch from Tennessee. Ranked No. 272 overall out of Florida

It was only a matter of time before Couch, rated by 247Sports as the No. 32 athlete in the nation, decommitted from Tennessee. He projects as a defensive back at the next level and he obviously doesn’t fit the criteria that Vols head coach Jeremy Pruitt looks for at that position (he’s too small).
I’m actually surprised that Couch stayed committed the Vols this long. My assumption is that he wanted to stay “committed” until he figured out where he was going to go.
That Vols currently have four commits to their 2019 recruiting class. It’s rated by 247Sports as the No. 39 class in the nation and the No. 11 class in the SEC.
