Cincinnati native offensive lineman Nathan Niehaus has flipped his commitment from West Virginia to Tennessee according to multiple reports. The news broke shortly after the Vols beat Northwestern 45-6 in the Outback Bowl on New Years Day. The 6-foot 6, 259-pound tackle gives Tennessee its second offensive line commitment for the 2016 class.
Also giving his verbal commitment to Tennessee on Sunday afternoon was cornerback Baylen Buchanan of Suwanee, Georgia. The 5-foot 11, 188-pound cornerback is the third defensive back to verbally commit to the Volunteers this class. He tweeted his commitment shortly after the Outback Bowl:
