KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — While Tennessee welcomed a host of commits and unofficial visitors over the weekend, one scheduled visitor did not make the trip.
With good reason, apparently.
Longtime linebacker commit Jaquan Henderson did not take his official visit to Tennessee this weekend, going to Georgia Tech instead.
The Newton (Ga.) standout left his visit with the Yellow Jackets committed to a different school, too, flipping from Tennessee to Georgia Tech on Sunday, sources confirmed to SEC Country.
The 3-star linebacker committed to Tennessee in June on “Orange Carpet Day.” Henderson took official visits to Nebraska, Indiana, Michigan State and North Carolina, but as SEC Country had previously reported, the hometown Yellow Jackets had quietly targeted the hybrid linebacker/safety for months.
The Vols now have 26 commits in their 2017 class, including a trio of linebackers: Shanon Reid (an early enrollee), Will Ignont and Solon Page III — both who took OVs to Tennessee this weekend.
