Four-star running back Johnathan Ford of New Hope (Ala.) High School has chosen to attend Auburn rather than Tennessee.
It's the latest blow in a National Signing Day that hasn't produced a ton of good news for the Vols. UT got Ford -- a former Vanderbilt commitment -- to visit Knoxville a few weeks back and seemed primed to flip him. But Ford's childhood favorite swept in with an offer after Tennessee, and Ford decided to go with his heart.
The only running back Tennessee will sign in this class is three-star Jabo Lee of Dillon, S.C.
