Top QB prospect no longer solidly committed to Vols

Posted by ESPN.com's Chris Low

The news is not getting any better for Tennessee's beleaguered football program. Top quarterback prospect Josh Nunes of Upland, Calif., has opened up his recruitment and is no longer solidly committed to the Vols.

Nunes is rated as the sixth best quarterback prospect in the country by ESPN.com. He cited travel concerns as the chief reason for opening up his recruitment and plans to take more visits before making a decision.

Nunes was in Neyland Stadium last Saturday for Tennessee's 30-6 loss to Florida. The Vols were roundly booed several times by their fans. Nunes also attended Tennessee's season-opening loss to UCLA in the Rose Bowl.
