Rivals100 wide receiver Justin Hunter out of Virginia Beach (Va.) Ocean Lakes has decommitted. The 6-foot-4, 172-pounder gave his pledge back in May to LSU, but has decided to open things up.
"Justin decommitted, but he is meeting with Billy Gonzales from LSU tonight so he can do it face-to-face," Ocean Lakes head coach Chris Scott said. "I'm not 100 percent sure if LSU is out of it altogether, but the loss of D.J. McCarthy really hurt. Justin had a good connection with him.
"I think right now it really looks like Tennessee. He's supposed to meet with Coach Derek Dooley tonight as well and I think Justin wants to get things over with. He's been to Tennessee, he likes the coaches and the situation. I think he feels like he's a fit there.

"He has a basketball game tonight that everyone will be at and due to NCAA rules he can't talk to any of the coaches until after the game, so it will be a long night for him."
Is anyone else in the mix?
"There's a chance Virginia could get a visit this weekend if he doesn't decide on Tennessee right away, they are in the mix," he said. "Justin will obviously have options if he wants them, but I just think he wasn't sold on LSU after D.J. left and I don't think he wants to drag this out. If all goes well over the next few days with Tennessee, I think that's where he lands."
