Five-star defensive back Adoree’ Jackson released his final four on Tuesday and the Tennessee Volunteers were not among his top four schools.

The Vols were a long shot from the beginning to land a commitment from Jackson, but they really appeared to gain some ground in the last couple of months.

None of the 247Sports Crystal Ball predictions had Jackson going to Tennessee.

It’s certainly disappointing for Vol fans to know they won’t be seeing Adoree’ Jackson suit up in orange, but there is no doubt that Tennessee wouldn’t have even been in the conversation if not for Butch Jones and his staff.
