Tennessee’s class of 2017 is officially down one offensive lineman after Jordan Tucker of Rosewell, Ga., decommitted from the Vols on Thursday morning.
The 6-foot-7, 335-pound lineman said via Twitter that the Vols remain on top, but he is no longer committed.

Tucker’s change of plans leaves the Vols with just one offensive lineman – three-star Riley Locklear – in the 24-man 2017 class, which is ranked as the fifth best in the SEC and the 10th best in the nation, according to 247Sports. Tennessee remains squarely in the hunt for offensive tackle Trey Smith of Jackson, Tenn. – one of the top overall players in the nation.
The Vols are scheduled to return 12 out of 13 of their scholarship offensive linemen in 2017, with center Dylan Wiesman being the exception.
