Any time something in a commitment’s plan changes, fans immediately start thinking of a decommitment.
Often times those changes are warning signs, other times they’re just unfortunate coincidences.
So you can imagine the thoughts going through the minds of Vol fans when four-star commit Chris Weatherd announced he’d no longer be an early enrollee at Tennessee this spring.
Fortunately for Vol fans, Weatherd is just a victim of circumstance — he’s still all Vol.
Just because I’m not an EE anymore doesn’t mean I’m leaving TN, nor does that mean they are dropping me.. For Gods sake!

That’s huge news for the Vols, as Weatherd is shaping up to be one of Tennessee’s most needed 2014 recruits. As a JuCo linebacker, he’ll be able to immediately help the Vols at a position of concern.
Weatherd is the top JuCo outside linebacker in the nation and the top JuCo player in the state of Texas, definitely a guy the Vols can’t let get away.
There really shouldn’t be too much question about Weatherd’s commitment to Tennessee, just take a look at him singing Rocky Top earlier this year.
