The Tennessee Volunteers have been engaged in a numbers game for quite some time, with their rather large 2014 recruiting class.
The numbers started to make a bit more sense on Tuesday night when Vol commit Jerome Dews announced on Twitter that he would not be enrolling at Tennessee this fall, but rather enrolling at a prep school.
I do have to go to Atlanta Sports Academy (Prep School) for 5 months before I go to Tennessee #Volnation

There was some speculation that Dews might not sign on Wednesday, thus his spot as a Vol wouldn’t be guaranteed in 2015, but according to Dews’ Twitter he still plans on signing tomorrow.
Signing at 8:40 tomorrow

Dews will effectively be an early enrollee to the Vols’ 2015 class, meaning he’s considered a gray-shirt this upcoming season.
His scholarship won’t count toward this year’s total.
Dews is a three-star Athlete from Oxon Hill, MD. He also had offers from Purdue, James Madison and Temple, among several others.
