NEW ORLEANS — After his recruitment began to pick up speed rapidly over the past few weeks, D’Andre Christmas-Giles has decommitted from Tennessee.
Christmas-Giles, a 3-star prospect from St. Augustine High School in New Orleans, picked up an offer from LSU this week. Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Arkansas and Texas A&M also offered the New Orleans defensive tackle in recent weeks after he committed to Tennessee over the summer.
“I would like to thank Tennesee and all of (their) coaching staff for welcoming me to the Family and showing me love while I was committed,” Christmas-Giles wrote. “I will be thinking about all of my options carefully this time. I have to look into my future and do what’s best for me.
“I am decommitted and opening up my recruitment. Thanks to Tennessee and all (their) coaching staff.”
