KD Nixon, a four-star wide receiver out of DeSoto High School in Texas, announced his decommitment from the Tennessee Volunteers via Twitter on Sunday night. Interestingly, after posting the note to social media, Nixon deleted the tweet. It does not appear that he received much heat from fans for the decision, to Tennessee fans' credit, so it definitely leads one to wonder whether he has had second thoughts, or if there is another reason for the move.
Around the time of the tweet, however, Nixon confirmed the decision to Scout's Greg Powers.
"I have decommitted from Tennessee," Nixon reported to Scout.
Now that he is back on the market he is considering offers from programs such as Baylor, Oklahoma State, TCU, SMU, UTSA and Oregon. The Ducks are the lone school to yet extend Nixon an offer on his new list, but it has been a school of note for some time in his recruitment and he has taken an unofficial visit to Eugene to see the campus.
Nixon is the No. 38 wide receiver in the class of 2017, per 247Sports composite rankings.
Nixon originally committed to the Vols on April 16.
