Three-star senior quarterback CJ Lewis of Cheshire (Conn.) Academy announced Tuesday night on his Twitter account that he has decommitted from Tennessee.
The 6-foot-3.5, 205-pound Lewis had been committed to the Vols since July 23. But they recently have resumed their search for a quarterback in the 2017 class, extending offers to three-star prospect Bubba Thompson of Mobile, Ala., three-star South Carolina commitment Jay Urich of Piedmont, S.C., and three-star Virginia Tech commitment Hendon Hooker of Greensboro, N.C., since last month.
Lewis, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 1,265 overall prospect and No. 28 dual-threat quarterback in the 247Sports Composite for the 2017 class, posted a note on his Twitter account explaining his decision.
“I have de-committed from the University Of Tennessee,” he wrote. “I wanna wish the UT coaches, players, and fans nothing but the best in the future. Looking at other schools is in my best interest right now. I will be doing NO INTERVIEWS. Please respect my decision.”
