The Vols found a diamond in the rough a few months ago in Jordan Young, a four-star receiver out of Georgia. Unfortunately for them, the rest of the nation caught on pretty quickly.
Young has officially flipped his commitment from UT to Florida State, marking the second decommitment for the Vols on National Signing Day.
FSU made it official moments ago on Twitter.

This is a big loss for the Vols. They are in dire need of help at receiver and Young was going to bring athleticism and playmaking-ability to Rocky Top. He finished his senior year with 66 catches for 1,562 yards and 17 TDs after recording 23 receptions for 276 yards and a touchdown his junior year.
Tennessee was the first P5 school to offer Young, catapulting him from an unrated prospect to the No. 192 overall prospect, but that wasn’t enough for the Vols to hold on.
