5-star OL Cade Mays Decommits From Tennessee, Fans React

Knoxville’s Cade Mays, considered one of the crown jewels of Tennessee’s 2018 recruiting class and one of the best prospects in the nation, announced via Twitter that he is officially decommitting from the Vols’ class.



Mays originally committed to Tennessee in July of 2015 and was one of the class’s most active members on Twitter, often doing some recruiting of his own by tweeting at other recruits to come to Tennessee.

It’s hard to say that the news comes with a big surprise. Mays visited Clemson and Georgia in the past few weeks, two of the hottest programs in the country right now.

Vol fans are probably seeing shades of last year’s class, when Clemson landed highly coveted receiver prospects Tee Higgins and Amari Rodgers. Rodgers and Mays, coincidentally, played for the same high school — Knoxville Catholic — while Higgins was from Oak Ridge, about 30 minutes from Knoxville.

Tennessee fans showed a mix of understanding and (unfortunately) contempt for Mays.




Maybe the best reply was this reaction GIF from a Georgia fan.

You have to admit, it’s pretty good.

Tennessee’s recruiting class is now ranked around No. 13-16 depending on the recruiting site you check.
