College football recruiting is a fickle thing — the Tennessee Vols know that as well as anyone.
(Remember the Jordan Young debacle?)
Recruits commit and decommit, or “re-open” their recruitment, all the time. Essentially, there’s no good reason to count on any commit until pen hits paper on signing day.
2020 Vol commit Jordan Davis is the latest example of how fluid recruiting can be.
The four-star junior college transfer tweeted his top six schools on Thursday. Davis didn’t include the Vols in his top six. The tweet was quickly deleted.
This is obviously cause for concern for Tennessee. Davis hasn’t addressed the deleted tweet, which makes me think it wasn’t a “mistake”. It seems like he gave the decision to tweet a top six without the Vols some second thought after he hit send.
Davis, who committed to UT last November, is rated by 247Sports as the top junior college transfer in the nation. Losing Davis to another program would be a major loss for the Vols — especially when you consider how much immediate help Tennessee needs along their defensive line.
Jeremy Pruitt and his staff need to make sure they lock down Davis. Perhaps this deleted tweet ordeal will cause Tennessee to pay a bit more attention to Davis and his recruitment.
Because let’s face it — just because a player commits doesn’t mean his recruitment is over.
In fact, in many cases it means it’s just getting started.
And that appears to be the case with Jordan Davis.
