Joshua Dobbs, a quarterback from Georgia, had been committed to Arizona State for nearly eight months before changing his mind on Signing Day and choosing the Tennessee Vols.

One of the oldest rules about college football recruiting is that nothing is guaranteed until that letter of intent comes through on the fax machine. It's a rule Arizona State can attest to this year.
After committing to the Sun Devils nearly eight months ago, four-star quarterback Joshua Dobbs surprised a lot of people on Wednesday morning when he signed with Butch Jones and Tennessee.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Dobbs is the No. 8 pro-style quarterback in the 2013 class, according to 247Sports.com. Although he's listed as a pro-style quarterback, Dobbs can still move, as he's been clocked at 4.7 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He's also good in the classroom, another nice quality to have in a quarterback, as he also had offers from Harvard, Princeton and Yale.
Dobbs is one of two quarterbacks to sign with Tennessee on Wednesday, joining three-star Riley Ferguson.
