Parting ways

Austin Kendall is back on the market after a decision made this week in Knoxville. Here's more on the Scout four-star quarterback prospect.

When Austin Kendall verbally committed to Tennessee in August 2014, he told InsideTennessee that he "wouldn't want anybody taking my spot here."

Not everything goes as planned in the recruiting world and on Monday the Charlotte-based junior and the Volunteers parted ways.

The Scout network rates Kendall as a four-star prospect. At the time of his Tennessee pledge he ranked as the No. 17 quarterback in the 2016 class and No. 233 player overall.

The right-hander threw for 4,461 yards and 49 touchdowns at Cuthbertson (N.C.) High School in 2014. Kendall is now rated No. 19 positionally but no longer in the in Scout 300.
