Rajion Neal is no longer a firm commitment to Mississippi State.
The 5-foot-11, 214-pound running back from Sandy Creek High School in Tyrone, Ga., told the News Sentinel on Tuesday his recruitment is “open.”
Neal visited Tennessee last weekend and said he will seriously consider signing with the Vols on National Signing Day on Feb. 3.
“It affected me a lot,” Neal said of his trip to UT. “It’s a place I have always been fond of. Going there was a good experience for me and I enjoyed myself.”
Neal said he could see himself playing in UT’s offense.
That picture was painted by head coach Derek Dooley and offensive coordinator Jim Chaney.
“They said this was a place where I was wanted and needed and a place I could fit in with the offense and the program,” Neal said.
Neal said he hopes to make a final decision by early next week.
He said he has no leader and is unsure if he’ll visit another school this weekend.
Neal’s only other visit was to Mississippi State on Jan. 15.
