Maybe the biggest target left on Tennessee’s board is Jaycee Horn. The son of former NFL receiver Joe Horn is considered a four star prospect. At 6-1, 170 pounds, Horn has the length that teams crave at cornerback.

Tennessee has had a rollercoaster ride with Jaycee Horn. They seemed to be trending up with him when he eliminated them, narrowing his choice to South Carolina and Alabama. But Tennessee somehow changed his mind, getting back into the race.
Now he’s set to decide between Tennessee, Alabama and South Carolina on Thursday night. It would still be a mild upset for the Vols to land Horn after all this, but they’ve clawed their way back into this race. We’ll see if Butch Jones and his white hot staff can close the deal with Horn.
