On Wednesday morning, Tennessee Vols football recruiting under new head coach Jeremy Pruitt got off to a hot start.

Four-star wide receiver Alontae Taylor took to Twitter to announce he would become the first Tennessee commitment under Pruitt’s direction.

Taylor is the No. 5 overall recruit in the state of Tennessee and was the 23rd-ranked wide receiver in the nation. Tennessee beat out Georgia to land the four-star pass catcher, who also had offers from programs like Alabama, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame and Ohio State.

The pass catcher announced his decision with a Bible verse along with pictures of himself in full Vols uniform, family and Coach Pruitt.

Taylor was previously committed to Tennessee, but decided to reopen his recruitment after Butch Jones was fired from the school in November.

However, getting Taylor back on board is a positive sign for the Vols moving forward.
