Kongbo signs LOI....at last
Tennessee has received a signed National Letter of Intent from Jonathan Kongbo, a source close to Kongbo’s recruitment told GoVols247 on Thursday morning.
Kongbo, the nation’s No. 1 overall junior college prospect in the 2016 industry-generated 247Sports Composite, previously has sent paperwork — but not a binding NLI — to Tennessee. That allowed Tennessee to mention him as a signee but didn’t officially wed him to the Vols.
With his NLI in Tennessee’s hands, Kongbo is now bound to Tennessee and can’t be recruited by any other programs.
