Here’s what Litaker told Rivals.com.
“I want to thank the coaches for giving me the chance to get my education at Tennessee,” Litaker said. “But I feel great now physically and I know I can play at high level in college and I’m going to find a place that’s right for me.”
The 6-3, 285 pound defensive tackle is out of Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He is considered a three star prospect by both Rivals and 247 Sports.
This situation felt off since the new staff arrived. Litaker found himself buried in a crowed class of interior defensive lineman, which includes Greg Emerson, Brandt Lawless and Kingston Harris.
Litaker tore his ACL in early September. From the wording of his quote, it sounds like that might have played a role in this decision.
