Four star defensive back Jaycee Horn’s recruitment has been a tough follow to this point. Tennessee was thought of as a long shot with South Carolina and Will Muschamp in the driver’s seat. The Vols did seem to have some momentum with Horn after Orange Carpet Day, however.
But Horn quickly squashed that by narrowing his decision to South Carolina and Alabama. Horn also set a commitment date of July 15th.
Now last night we get this — a simple picture of a Tennessee jersey with Horn’s name on the back of it.
Horn is coming off a weekend in Oregon where he participated in The Opening Finals.
This picture comes just ten days before Horn was supposed to announce his final decision between the Gamecocks and the Tide. The rumor mill is swirling, of course. You’ve got some reports (behind paywalls) of Horn’s commitment date being in question.
It at least appears Tennessee isn’t out of the equation here. Tennessee commit Jatavious Harris has been recruiting Horn, among others. He reacted to the tweet this afternoon as well, just like all of us.
We’ll update this story with any confirmed news that leaks.
