Tennessee takes another hit

The 6' 6", 220 pound defensive end out of Miami has decided to reopen his recruitment after Tennessee's head coach took the Southern Cal job. To learn more about it, click below.

"I decommitted from Tennessee," added Delvin Jones by text just minutes ago. "I am opening my recruitment back up."

The Miami Palmetto Senior standout was scheduled to visit Tennessee this weekend with his good friend and Vol commit, Ralph Williams, but those plans could be changed as well.

"I do not know if we are going to visit Tennessee this weekend or not. We are going to talk about it and make a decision in the next few days."

Delvin was actually offered by Southern Cal while Pete Carroll was there, but he did not want to speculate if he was going to follow Kiffin to LA.

"I have no idea what I am going to do right now. I need another day or two to think about that, but they want me to come (with them to Southern Cal)."

Jones was scheduled to visit Ole Miss and Arkansas on the 15th and 30th. Is that still in the plans?

"Those were the plans, but that could still change. I have not talked to Arkansas in a while about that visit, and I might visit Southern Cal as well. I just got to see what happens in the next couple of days."

Delvin has been one of the more dominant forces in the Sunshine State the past two years as he collected 36 sacks and 137 tackles during this time frame.
