On the eve of National Signing Day, Miami found out the hard way that all-American cornerback Tyler Byrd will be not be a Hurricane.

Byrd, who committed to Miami last year, announced on Periscope on Tuesday that he was headed to Tennessee in 2016. In a video that lasts a little more than three minutes, Byrd discusses his decision before revealing his choice by donning a Tennessee hat.

The 5-foot-11, 194-pound four-star cornerback from Naples High School in Florida is ranked the ninth-best corner in the nation by 247Sports and was an Army All-American Bowl selection.
