After last weekend’s visit, it was clear Tennessee was back in the driver’s seat for four star athlete Alontae Taylor. He was set to take a visit to Louisville this weekend, but cancelled, planning on coming back to Knoxville once again.
Taylor recommitted to Tennessee today, announcing it from his Twitter account.

"For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." 1000% COMMITTED #PruittEra pic.twitter.com/6KW86Mm6ba
Taylor is a huge in-state get for Jeremy Pruitt and his staff. He will serve as the first commitment of the Pruitt era. He decommited after Butch Jones was fired, but clearly took a liking to the new coaching staff.
The 6-0, 184 pound Taylor likely projects as a wide receiver. Taylor is a native of Manchester, Tennessee, playing for Coffee County High School.
