Vols Land Berry Twins; Kameel Jackson Decommits


College football recruiting is fluid at best.

On Monday the Tennessee Volunteers received commitments from two of their biggest targets, while having also received word of a player who decided to decommit.

Evan and Elliot Berry (Fairburn, GA (Creekside), the twin brothers of former standout Vol Eric Berry, announced they have committed to play football at Tennessee.

The Berry twins, as Vol nation affectionately refers to them, are considered two Vol legacies that Tennessee absolutely could not miss out on.

Evan is a four-star recruit that projects to be a cornerback at Tennessee. The 5’11″/195 lb defensive back is rated as the 55th best cornerback in the nation and the 61st best player in the state of Georgia.

Elliot is rated as a three-star recruit that could play either outside linebacker or safety for the Vols. Elliot, 5’11″/191, is rated as the 83rd best safety in the nation and the 84th best player in the state of Georgia.

The Berry twins hold an impressive offer list, including: Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, LSU and Miami, among several others.

Both should be able to help the Vols immediately, but Evan is definitely the most likely of the two to see the field early.

As far as the bad news for the Vols, Kameel Jackson, a JuCo wide receiver that committed to Tennessee in April, has decommited according to various reports.

Jackson has had some trouble at previous schools, leaving Oklahoma after being suspended by Bob Stoops. He then enrolled at Blinn College (yes the same one where Cam Newton was enrolled).

The commitment of the Berry twins, along with the departure of Jackson, leaves the Vols with 29 current commits. Butch Jones has said he plans to sign 30 players in the 2014 class.
