Buried in the middle of Tennessee’s NCAA tournament game against Iowa came some football news. The Vols lost a commitment from 2020 athlete Antonio Barber, bringing their number down to four commitments, currently.
Barber posted this note, announcing his decommitment.

“They will always stay in the picture, but I just want to make sure I make the right decision for me and my family,” Barber said.
Barber is a three-star receiver prospect out of North Carolina. The 5-11, 182 pound prospect committed to Tennessee back in April of 2018. He is the 501st ranked player in the 2020 class, according to 247 Sports.
This news probably shouldn’t surprise us, being that N.C. State picked up a couple of crystal ball projections for Barber over the last few weeks.
This further solidifies Tennessee’s need at receiver in the 2020 class. With Marquez Callaway and Jauan Jennings on their way out, Tennessee will need a few more bodies in that room next year.
