The wild recruitment of Thompson's Station (Tenn.) Independence four-star wide receiverA TJ Sheffieldtook 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.

a€œAfter 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,a€ wrote Sheffield in an announcement on Twitter. a€œCoach 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 Damea€™s decision as Goda€™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,A TJ Sheffield. #2.a€

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