Tennessee loses 3 commitments, including touted WR Alontae Taylor

Alontae Taylor

Tennessee quickly lost three commitments in the wake of Butch Jones’ firing, with four-star receiver Alontae Taylor, three-star defensive end Dorian Gerald and three-star Shocky Jacques-Louis re-opening their recruitments.

Taylor, from Manchester (Tenn.) Coffee County Central, was one of the Vols’ marquee commitments. He is a national top-150 prospect who originally committed to Tennessee in June 2016.

Jacques-Louis is from Fort Myers (Fla.) Dunbar. He committed to Tennessee in August.

Gerald is one of the top-10 junior college prospects nationally. He pledged to the Vols in July.

In addition, Vols three-star cornerback commitment Tanner Ingle of powerhouse Orlando Dr. Phillips told the Orlando Sentinel that he had talked with Jones on Sunday and that Jones told him “he didn’t really expect that to happen, but it did so he told me to find a place to go, quickly … and that if he gets anything he will contact me.”

Ingle committed to the Vols in June.
