    Tennessee’s lone unsigned commitment in the 2020 class is currently on the campus of another Power Five program.

    Darion Williamson, a three-star athlete who played for Haywood High School in Brownsville, TN, tweeted out on Thursday that he would be in Tallahassee, Florida to visit Florida State starting on Thursday night. Williamson is taking an official visit to see the Seminoles.

    The 6-foot-3, 190-pound wide receiver/linebacker was one of two Vol commits who did not sign with Tennessee in December during the early signing period. The other Vol commit not to do so, three-star offensive lineman Kyree Miller, has since decommitted from the Vols.

    It’s thought that Tennessee may be trying to blueshirt Williamson in the 2020 class, but he may not end up being part of the Vols’ class when it’s all said and done.

    Williamson picked up an offer from FSU on January 10th and added an offer from Arkansas a week later. Arkansas wide receiver coach Justin Stepp made an in-home visit to see Williamson earlier this week, and the Razorbacks are expected to host Williamson on an official visit at the end of the month. The three-star athlete also added an offer from Virginia on Wednesday of this week.

    The versatile athlete played on both sides of the ball for Haywood, but his senior season was cut short. Williamson suffered a season-ending ACL injury on October 4th, just seven games into his senior year. Williamson has since had surgery on his right knee and is expected to be ready to practice by the fall.

    Tennessee offered Williamson back in May, and he attended a camp on UT’s campus in June. There, he ran a 4.5-second 40-yard dash and impressed Tennessee’s coaches as both a wide receiver and a defender.

    Williamson committed to Tennessee on July 17th. He took an unofficial visit to Memphis on September 26th, but he didn’t take any other visits during the 2019 season other than that.

    The Vols signed 21 prospects during the early signing period in December, and they’ve since added three transfers. Georgia offensive lineman Cade Mays and USC grad transfer wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. have already been officially welcomed as Vols, and Nebraska wide receiver Miles Jones has also transferred to UT. Jones, however, isn’t expected to be eligible for the 2020 season and is joining the roster as a walk-on initially.
