Cross Explains Decommitment From Tennessee

Imani Cross never intended to decommit from Tennessee.

But to his disappointment, that was the case for the running back from North Hall High School in Gainesville, Ga.

As Cross tells it, the Vols seemed to turn their back on their first commitment of the 2012 class.

“I definitely had high hopes on Tennessee,” he said. “I was a little disappointed but at the same time I realize when one door closes, another one opens. I’m just moving along.”

UT appeared to force that move when its interest in Cross slowed and the Vols began to recruit other running backs. Cross believed UT’s coaches didn’t try to contact him as much as before.

Cross said he recently called UT defensive backs coach and recruiting coordinator Terry Joseph to check in.

“When I did call him they told me there were other backs they were looking at and at the same time they were interviewing other running backs coaches and I would have to be reevaluated,” Cross said.

So Cross decided to reevaluate his own options. He said Vanderbilt, Wisconsin, North Carolina and Virginia have recruited him the hardest since he committed to UT in February. Kentucky, Georgia Tech, Maryland and Purdue have also offered scholarships.

Cross, who’s ranked the No. 19 running back in the nation by ESPN.com, said he has yet to schedule any trips. NCAA rules allow him to take up to five official visits.

#19 running back in the nation...and you're recruiting other backs harder?! Have we lost our minds or is this kid not as good as these others guys?
