Running back Will Stallings Jr. is no longer a member of the 2023 Tennessee recruiting class, announcing that he is opening his recruitment up Tuesday afternoon.

“After a conversation my family and (Tennessee running backs) coach Jerry Mack I’ll be opening my recruiting process back up,” Stallings tweeted. “I will be taken visits to determine where I will be attending.”

Stallings committed to the Vols back in June while he camped and visited Tennessee. Ranking as an athlete who could play either running back or linebacker in college the three-star stated he planned on playing running back in Knoxville.

The 6-foot running back ranks as a three-star and the No. 957 player and No. 64 running back in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings.

Stallings played his junior season at Las Vegas powerhouse Bishop Gorman before transferring back to his home state — California — to play his senior season at Clayton Valley High School.

The low rated recruit was Tennessee’s only running back commit in the 2023 cycle. Tennessee signed two running backs last class and Dylan Sampson has had a nice freshman season in Knoxville.

Four-star athlete Cameron Seldon could play running back in college but projects as a receiver in Tennessee’s offense. Three-star running back Khalifa Keith visited Tennessee last weekend after de-committing from Kentucky earlier this month.

Stallings de-commitment gives Tennessee 21 commits in its 2023 recruiting class and drops the class’s ranking from No. 11 to No. 12 nationally according to the 247sports team rankings.
