A name familiar to Florida fans, five-star Miami Central linebacker Terrence Lewis decommitted from Tennessee on Monday night.

He shared the news on his Twitter account, saying the Volunteers are still his top school.

The best inside linebacker in the 2021 cycle and a top-five player in the state, according to the 247Sports Composite, Lewis originally committed to Dan Mullen’s Gators on January 22, 2019, but backed off that pledge less than three months later.

His initial verbal commitment to Tennessee lasted exactly seven months, as he announced his intent to join the Knoxville-based outfit on April 30.

Jeremy Pruitt’s Volunteers still hold 11 of Lewis’ 14 Crystal Ball Predictions, with Gus Malzahn’s Auburn Tigers possessing two and Manny Diaz’ Miami Hurricanes owning the other one.

It is important to note both of his Auburn Crystal Balls, filed by Jason Caldwell and Keith Niebuhr, were submitted on Tuesday, suggesting some momentum for the Tigers.

Florida currently features two four-star linebackers, both of whom are projected to play outside, in their 26-member 2021 class, Diwun Black, a junior college transfer from Mississippi Gulf Coast, and Heard County’s (Franklin, Georgia) Chief Borders, who recently affirmed his commitment to the Gators over a push from the Stanford Cardinal.
