Not So Fast, says Couch

Posted Oct 14, 2010

Talented Garden City JUCO DT Maurice Couch publicly committed to Tennessee earlier Thursday, but now says he's back open to South Carolina and Tennessee.

"I really wanted to see South Carolina to really make sure and I had a great time there," Couch told Scott Eklund of earlier tonight. "After I thought about it though, Tennessee was just the right place for me and I felt like I could get a good education and play some big-time football there."

The talented prospect also confirmed the news to's Jason Ross then.

Mere hours later, Couch texted Ross that he's no longer committed to Tennessee

Phone calls to Couch to try and get more on his reasoning were not returned.

"I'm down (to) S. Carolina (and) Tenn," Couch went on to say in a text message to Ross. "Ima wait till I go visit Tenn (to) make my decision."
