Former OU commit Loften recommits elsewhere
Eddrick Loften, a safety from Irving, Texas, who was once committed to Oklahoma, pledged to the Volunteers on Saturday.
“I like (new Tennessee coach Derek) Dooley a lot,” Loften told the Chattanooga Times Free Press. “He’s a cool guy … a real straightforward kind of guy. He wants to really change the program and turn it around, and he wants guys like me to help him do it.
“I really liked what he was talking about.”
The 5-foot-10, 195-pound Loften committed to OU last February, but decommitted in December as Loften and OU mutually parted ways.
Rivals ranks Loften as the No. 14 safety in the country.
The Sooners, however, have five other defensive backs (Aaron Colvin, Tony Jefferson, James Haynes, Julian Wilson and Quentin Hayes) committed from this class.
