Jonathan Kongbo isn’t a Tennessee Volunteer just yet.
The nation’s top junior college prospect told SEC Country late Monday evening that his father has yet to sign his national letter of intent to be a Vol. However, Kongbo said he signed his Financial Aid Agreement papers, which allowed Tennessee to promote him publicly last week. Kongbo said his father plans to sign the papers soon.
However, until that paperwork is completed and received by Tennessee, the four-star recruit will not be a Vol.
“My dad has been away,” Kongbo told SEC Country. “He will sign it when he gets home.”
When asked if he was looking at other schools, Kongbo said, “I’m not looking around. I’m not interested in anybody else.”
Also, by signing the agreement, Tennessee can have unlimited contact with him just in case other schools began re-recruiting him. Kongbo chose the Vols over Ole Miss, Southern California and Florida State. Alabama also made a strong push for the 6-foot-6, 264-pound defensive end.
