2018 all-purpose back Lyn-J Dixon decommits from Tennessee

The 15-9 defeat to South Carolina was not the only loss Tennessee suffered on Saturday.

Lyn-J Dixon just decommitted from the Tennessee Volunteers. The Butler, Georgia native announced his decommitment on his personal Twitter account.

Dixon originally committed to the Vols back on June 24. At the time, Dixon became the 13th member of their 2018 class and seventh player of four-star caliber or higher. Now though, four months later, that is all for naught.

One team that could be in the running for Dixon is the Clemson Tigers. The Tigers hosted him on an unofficial visit on July 21 and on March 1 as well. That visit in July (as well as a scholarship offer) came to Dixon after his commitment to Tennessee. We’ll see if Dabo Swinney can flip him to bolster their stout recruiting class.

Tennessee’s class still ranks first in the SEC and sixth in the country after Lyn-J Dixon’s decommitment. This is still, obviously, a big loss for the Vols heading into next year. Dixon is the sixth-ranked all-purpose back in the country, the 30th-ranked player in Georgia and in the Top 300 nationally in 2018.
