Former Tennessee Commit Switches to Indiana

    by -


    Former Tennessee commit and class of 2022 recruit Venson Sneed announced his decommitment from Tennessee on Sunday. With the decommitment from the Vols, he also announced that he would be committing to Indiana instead.

    Sneed, a three-star defensive lineman according to 247 Sports’ rankings, made the announcement via a social media post online.

    On Apr. 15th, 2021, Sneed originally committed to Tennessee. Then, towards the end of June, Sneed took an official visit over to Knoxville. At the beginning of December, though, it looked like Sneed could have potentially been headed to play at Marshall after visiting the Thundering Herd on Dec. 3. However, Sneed then took a visit to Indiana on Dec. 10, committing to the Hoosiers just two days later.


    Sneed is a two-sport athlete (basketball and football) from Winter Park High School in Winter Park, FL. As a senior in high school, Sneed stands at 6-foot-4 and weighs in at 240-pounds.

    Even with the loss of Sneed, the Tennessee recruiting class in 2021 has been shaping out nicely. The Vols have been significant movers over the last few weeks following several commitments from players around the country. Since Nov. 22, Tennessee has hauled in commitments from two four-stars and a handful of three-star players. Wide receiver Kaleb Webb and edge rusher Joshua Josephs, Tennessee’s two aforementioned four-stars, now rank as the third and fourth-highest commits on Tennessee’s list. Additionally, the Vols secured an early class of 2023 commitment in the likes of four-star tight end Ethan Davis on Sunday.

    Tennessee will also be in on a potential recruitment this upcoming Wednesday when four-star running back Justin Williams announces his commitment and puts the pen to paper on Early Signing Day. Currently, Tennessee looks to be trending in the right direction as the Vols battle Auburn for the commitment of Williams.

    After some movement from SEC teams in the rankings, the Tennessee class is now sitting at 18th nationally and eighth in the SEC, according to 247. The Vols have a total of four four-star players and 14 three-star players in the class of 2022.
