Tennessee snags Jaycee Horn
The long and winding recruitment of cornerback Jaycee Horn has come to end.
Horn made his pledge to play at Tennessee public Thursday night during an exclusive SEC Country show.
The Alpharetta, Ga., native made his final decision between the Vols, Alabama and South Carolina. Horn had cut Tennessee out of his final two, but the Vols clawed their way back into the mix.
Horn attended Tennessee’s Orange Carpet Day on June 17 and took another visit to the campus on July 22.
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound cornerback rates as a 4-star prospect and the No. 219 player in the Class of 2018, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings.
Tennessee now has 23 commitments in the cycle and ranks as the No. 6 class in the country and the best class in the SEC.
Horn joins Orlando, Fla., natives Tanner Ingle and Brandon Cross as the other cornerbacks committed to the Vols.
