College Football Recruiting: Alontae Taylor recommits to Tennessee


SB Nation Recruiting

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 was planning on announcing his commitment on December 22nd, choosing between Tennessee and Georgia, but he just couldn’t wait any longer.

Taylor recommitted to Tennessee today, announcing it from his Twitter account.

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.
