"Now that it's out there, yes, Tennessee confirmed Kevin Ware has been released from his LOI. My understanding is UT plans to re-recruit him."
This info came from a series of tweets from Kevin Ware. I don't have his twitter handle, though, so I'm just linking Rucker's tweeting of what had been known for several hours.
Ware indicated in his tweet that Tennessee was still his #1 choice.
