Nation's #1 wide receiver Kyle Prater to visit Tennessee

Kyle Prater Rock

As I mentioned earlier this morning by way of a FanShot, Kyle Prater's subpar performance in yesterday's U.S. Army All-American Bowl was understandable due to the dude being a complete wreck over Saturday's revelation that Pete Carroll will likely be leaving USC for the Seattle Seahawks. Prater was so committed to Carroll and USC that he was set to enroll on Monday. Upon hearing about Carroll's departure, Prater decommitted and said he'd be looking around.

Scout is now reporting that Prater will indeed be visiting Tennessee, perhaps as early as this week, and from the sound of some of his quotes, he's not just looking for somewhere to land this fall, he's looking to land now:

"I’m supposed to enroll tomorrow at USC," Prater said. "Instead I’m headed back home to figure out what to do. I’m not sure whether I will sit out a year or try to get enrolled another school in a week’s time."

Apparently, it's between us and Illinois now, so cross your fingers. It's no wonder why he's interested in Tennessee. Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron helped Carroll build what's just been pulled out from under Prater's feet, and they're starting anew in Knoxville. The attraction to Illinois? Well. Hmm. Dude likes orange?

Prater is a 6'5", 205-pound wide receiver who runs the 40 in 4.55 seconds. Scout gives him five stars and has him listed as the #2 WR in the nation. Rivals also gives him five stars and has him listed as the #1 WR and #2 player overall in the nation.

By the way, this morning's FanShot also indicated that Dillon Baxter and D.J. Morgan have also both decommitted from USC and are up for grabs.
