Kendrick Hardy is torn. This four-star prospect from Monticello (Miss.) Lawrence County High School was committed to Southern Miss. Then he visited the University of Tennessee last weekend.
"That was a good visit," Hardy said. "The academics are good and so are their facilities. I know coach (Frank) Wilson well and I like that coaching staff. They are all good."
Hardy committed to the Eagles back about ten days ago. At the time he thought that was the best decision for him.
"Southern Miss is closer to home and I really like the environment there. I also like the facilities and I can play early. Coach (Larry) Fedora is a good coach. I like him a lot."
So will he stay home and play for Southern Miss or is Hardy going to have to learn the words to Rocky Top?
"I just don't know. I have to make a hard decision and may have to wait until National Signing Day."
Southern Miss is scheduled to make their final in-home visit with Hardy tomorrow while Tennessee will make their in-home with him on Thursday.
Hardy had 172 carries for 1,752 yards and 19 touchdowns on the season.
