    Three-star safety Edwin White has decommitted from Tennessee, he announced on Twitter Tuesday night.

    White is the second recruit to decommit from the Vols on the eve of the early signing period beginning. He joins three-star in-state athlete Elijah Howard, who decommitted from Tennessee and committed to Virginia Tech just moments before White’s announcement.

    “I would first like to thank the coaching staff at The University of Tennessee, for believing in me and offering me my first year in high school,” White said in a tweet. “But I would like to decommit from Tennessee to open my options up again to find a true home.”

    White is ranked as the No. 780 overall player in the class of 2021 according to the 247Sports composite rankings. The six-foot defensive back was ranked as the No. 60 overall safety in the country and No. 32 overall in the state of Alabama.

    The UMS-Wright Preparatory School product from Mobile, Alabama committed to Tennessee on March 7 during a visit to campus for one the Vols’ final junior days before the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown in-person recruiting.

    Tennessee now has 21 commits in its recruiting class with the early signing period set to begin tomorrow. The class ranks No.
