Defensive end Corey Lemonier from Hialeah (Fla.) High School has apparently eliminated Tennessee from consideration.
“It's just Florida State and Auburn," Lemonier told Auburnsports.com. "Those are the schools that I'm looking at the most.
The declaration is hardly a shock. Lemonier was thought to be a long shot for the Vols.
However, UT is in better shape with Lemonier’s teammate, defensive lineman Calvin Smith, a one-time UT commitment, who is also considering Florida State and Alabama, among others.
Lemonier took his official visit to Alabama last weekend and called the trip “phenomenal”. It is unclear if the 6-foot-4, 265-pounder will take an official visit this weekend.
