Vols lose four commitments in Jones aftermath

From ESPN - November 12, 2017

The fallout from Butch Jones' firing at Tennessee includes four decommitments on Sunday.

Under Armour All-America Game wide receiver Alontae Taylor, No. 46 in the Class of 2018, officially decommitted Sunday after Jones was fired. The 6-foot-1, 180-pound playmaker was wavering in recent weeks with the uncertainty surrounding Jones' future in Knoxville.

Among the schools in contention for Taylor include Georgia, Alabama, Louisville, Wake Forest, Georgia Tech and Notre Dame.

Taylor, the No. 2-ranked prospect in the Volunteer State, follows the state's top-ranked prospect, offensive tackle Cade Mays, in backing off his pledge. Mays decommitted Nov. 7.

In addition to Taylor, receiver Shocky Jacques-Louis out of southwest Florida, defensive back Tanner Ingle and junior college defensive end verbal Dorian Gerald also announced decommitments, dealing a blow to the Volunteers' one-time top 10-ranked recruiting class.
