Tennessee LB target decommits from Ohio State

Could Tennessee get back in the race?

Tennessee saw another linebacker option reappear on the market last night. Mid-state standout Kane Patterson told Nashville radio (3HL) host Brent Dougherty that he has decommitted from Ohio State.

The timing of the decommitment is likely related to the ongoing saga in Columbus, which saw head coach Urban Meyer get suspended for the first three games of the 2018 season. Patterson committed to Ohio State on July 9th. Now the in-state linebacker will likely take another look at Tennessee.

Patterson had it narrowed down to Ohio State, Tennessee, Alabama and Texas A&M before he initially committed. Clemson threw their hat in the ring back in August and could now be a player as well.

The 6-1, 225 pound linebacker is currently in his senior season at Christ Presbyterian Academy, just outside of Nashville. He is the 7th ranked prospect in the state of Tennessee and the 199th player overall in the 2019 class, according to 247 Sports.

Tennessee currently holds the 10th ranked class of the 2019 cycle. Patterson is definitely a name to keep in the back of your mind as the recruiting season marches on.
