BJ Ojulari De-Commits From Tennessee

by | Oct 27, 2019

BJ Ojulari, a highly rated defensive-end from Marietta, GA has flipped his commitment from the University of Tennessee to LSU today in a surprising turn of events. One of Ojulari’s teammates, 5-Star TE, Arik Gilbert is currently committed to LSU, and while Ojulari was scheduled to make a trip to Baton Rouge he reportedly did not make the trip due to a canceled flight. This makes the news of Ojulari’s de-commitment even more strange as the timing makes absolutely no sense. Ojulari’s de-commitment also comes following Tennessee’s 41-21 blowout of South Carolina, which is very confusing. In all honesty, this whole situation is strange.

Regardless, the 4-Star DE is now a Tiger and the Volunteers will have no choice but to look elsewhere for a pass-rush in this year’s class. You can expect them to turn up the heat on Reggie Grimes, a 6’3’’ 242-pound WDE from Ravenwood in the coming weeks as the Vols are in desperate need of bringing in recruits along the defensive line. Grimes is set to announce his college decision on November 28th.

In the end, this is a tough loss for Tennessee on the trail, but recruiting is a harsh and unpredictable thing. It’s up to Tennessee to recover quickly and attempt to recover some momentum in this class.
