A once promising 2010 recruiting class for Tennessee that was ranked in the top five nationally has taken another hit with the decommitment of elite guard Josh Selby.
Selby, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound combo guard headed to Baltimore Lake Clifton High School next year, made a rushed decision to commit to Tennessee and has had doubts ever since according to his mother Maeshon Witherspoon.
"Josh has been going back and forth for a good bit of the time that he has been committed," said Witherspoon. "He only looked at two schools - Tennessee and Louisville - before he committed and made a rash and fast decision. He was just so overwhelmed by the football game at Tennessee and the support he received from the fans. The whole time he has always had doubts about going to Tennessee."
Witherspoon also noted that her son's impressive play this summer has created opportunities for him that they are eager to explore.
"With Josh blowing up at the last couple camps, there are other schools that we know are now options for him," said Witherspoon. "I'm not saying that he is no longer interested in Tennessee. They are still a school that he will consider."
Witherspoon said that they have not been in contact with any other schools. The process of talking to other schools and formulating a new school list will begin today.
