The wild recruitment of Thompson's Station (Tenn.) Independence four-star wide receiver TJ Sheffield took another turn on Wednesday. Just days after announcing his commitment to Notre Dame, the 5-10, 170-pounder from the class of 2019 has reopened his recruitment and will now consider other schools.

Clearly there was a miscommunication on this front and Sheffield shed some light on this on Twitter earlier today.

“After establishing a long-term relationship with coach Alexander, the receivers coach for Notre Dame, I called him on the morning of the 6th of July and stat to him my intensions to commit,” wrote Sheffield in an announcement on Twitter. “Coach Alexander then congratulated me on committing and he spoke with my parents as well, stating that he looked forward to coaching me. Today I received a call from coach Alexander stating that Notre Dame was not going to honor my commitment due to a change of plans. Coach Alexander stated that he should have let me know on the 6th of July that Notre Dame had different plans. As a result of the information that I received today, my recruitment is now back open. I completely accept Notre Dame’s decision as God’s will for me and know that God has an open door that no man can shut. Thats again to Notre Dame for considering me as a possibility for their program Sincerely, TJ Sheffield. #2.”

At the time of his commitment, Sheffield told Irish Illustrated that he was excited to be a part of the Fighitng Irish program.

"I told coach Alexander and he was very excited for me," said Sheffield, who informed the coaching staff of his decision just moments before his pledge went public on Twitter. "They throw the ball a lot, have a great offense, and I know it's the place for me when looking at the academics, education and football." He added that his parents were happy for him as well. “They were very happy for me," said Sheffield. "They wanted me to pick the best fit for me. I told them it was Notre Dame and they agreed."

Sheffield had previously narrowed down his recruitment to Notre Dame, Arkansas, Purdue and Ohio State. However, in talking to sources close to the situation, the expectation was that it wasn't going to be the Fighting Irish due to the fact that there was little to no communication over the past few months. However, Sheffield surprised everyone when he chose the Irish on July 6. Sheffield will now take a step back and consider his options once again. In addition to his four finalists, others in play on his offer list include Tennessee, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Stanford, North Carolina, Kentucky, Louisville, and many others.

As a junior, Sheffield caught 56 passes for 840 yards and five touchdowns. As a sophomore, he totaled 885 yards receiving and 10 touchdowns on 48 catches.

Per the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Sheffield is the No. 236 overall player in the country, No. 38 wide receiver nationally and No. 9 prospect in Tennessee from the 2019 class.
