Tennessee's recruiting class lost two prospects Wednesday -- both at the quarterback position -- but new head coach Jeremy Pruitt also secured the recommitment of his first big recruit since taking over at Knoxville. ESPN 300 quarterback Adrian Martinez and three-star Michael Penix both announced Wednesday they are no longer part of the Vols' 2018 class. Martinez, a 6-foot-2, 198-pound quarterback from Fresno, California, flopped his commitment from Tennessee to Nebraska. New Huskers coach Scott Frost and quarterbacks coach Mario Verduzco made Martinez a priority immediately after Frost was hired by Nebraska. Martinez took a visit to Nebraska and was also contacted by Pruitt, but ultimately decided to flip his commitment. Penix, a Tampa, Florida, prospect, announced his decommitment on Twitter, three days after receiving a scholarship offer from Florida State and new head coach Willie Taggart.
