For the second time in the 2018 recruiting cycle, defensive back Jaylon Reed has de-committed from an SEC school.
Reed, who had previously been committed to Tennessee, announced that he was de-committing from Mississippi State on Saturday.
Thanks to Mississippi State and the fans for the opportunity. At this time I will be decommitting.

Having de-commitments following a coaching change isn’t un-common. But an intersting nugget with regards to Reed is that Bob Shoop was the defensive coordinator at Tennessee when he de-committed. Shoop was reportedly hired at Mississippi State on Friday to be the school’s defensive coordinator.
Reed is listed at 6-foot-1 and comes from Olive Branch, Ms. He is the No. 20 player in the state of Mississippi and a 3-star prospect. Mississippi State replaced Dan Mullen with Penn State offensive coordinator Joe Moorhead. Despite the de-commitment, the Bulldogs still have the No. 14 class in the country, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
