LB Kevin Mouhon says he’s no longer committed to Tennessee


KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Tennessee linebacker commitment Kevin Mouhon announced on Twitter Thursday night that he would playing college football elsewhere.

One possible destination is Cincinnati, where his brother Silverberry is a standout defensive lineman.

Mouhon, of Norcross, Ga., had been verbally committed to the Vols since July 21.

His departure leaves Tennessee with 33 players in its 2014 signing class, including 14 who have already enrolled.

Here is Tennessee’s updated commitment list.

After new ratings, Josh Malone moves to top of Tennessee’s 2014 class

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — Running back Jalen Hurd has been the highest ranked player in Tennessee’s 2014 class since he verbally committed to the Vols last March.

But a small tweak in the ratings has moved another in-state offensive star ahead of him. Receiver Josh Malone now has a 0.9818 rating in the 247Sports Composite, which combines the rankings of all major recruiting services into one poll. That’s just ahead of Hurd’s 0.9793 rating.

Hurd is no longer a consensus five-star player. He just misses the cutoff, ranked the 36th best player in the country according to the Composite index.

With recruiting in the home stretch, there are likely to be few if any changes between now and National Signing Day. Of the Vols’ 34 commitments, there are 15 four-star players and 19 three-star prospects.

In the newest update, in-state lineman Charles Mosley jumped up a couple of spots to 14th in UT’s class with an 0.8948 rating. Linebacker Kevin Mouhon moved down a tad and is now just below the four-star cutoff in the Composite. Cory Thomas moved ahead of two future teammates and is now the 23rd-rated prospect in the class.

Here’s the full list of UT verbal commitments.

After Tennessee’s busy ‘Foundation Week,’ some questions and answers about Vols’ recruiting

KNOXVILLE, Tennessee — When they gave last week a name, you knew Tennessee coach Butch Jones wasn’t going to let it pass without any commitments.

In fact, there were six in a seven-day span, starting with Eric Lauderdale on July 14 and ending with Kevin Mouhon on Sunday night.

It’s fair to say #FoundationWeek, #FoundationDay and any other brick-related metaphors worked out OK. The Vols are now a consensus No. 1 in the team recruiting rankings (according to the 247Sports Composite).

With the six new additions, the Vols have an incredible 24 players who have verbally committed to sing in the Class of 2014, with still seven months to go until National Signing Day.

We think that the Vols can sign 29 or 30 players in this class. So that leaves precious little space to fill.

With that in mind, a few questions and answers….
