I assume three scholarships will be saved for Christian Bryant, Seantrel Henderson, and Jordan Hicks if they decide to come. Does that leave one more and for who?

Listening to AD Mike Hamilton now over the radio. Nothing on the coaching situation, but recruits who were EE's don't have to be in class to be locked in as students. They have to be students as of 12:01 AM. What that means for the recruiting class, I dunno, but the reports that "As long as they don't attend class" was inaccurate.

Hamilton: "The 8 EE's are enrolled at UT at this time."

4* DT Calvin Smith decommits from Tennessee, according to Rivals.

According to Andy Staples, SI recruiting analyst:

Brandon's Byrnes High bookend, Corey Miller, already was in Knoxville. The Willises called Miller and told him he should not, under any circumstances, attend class on Wednesday. Tuesday, Miller told PalmettoSports.com that he intends to attend class anyway. "I'm 100 percent Vols," Miller told the site. "I'm going to class tomorrow. I love Knoxville. I love this place and this is where I'm going to be. It was a letdown, but we've got to stick together as a team and pull thru it."

Tyler Bray and Corey Miller = ALL VOL! Miller may or may not have participated in the pseudo-riot last night... *cough*

Reported that the other EE's are staying put, but that could very easily change. Kippy Brown and Mike Hamilton spoke to them last night and this morning, as well as their parents.

We were reportedly looking at him at OL.


J.C. Copeland is staying with Tennessee. Per KNS... “It doesn’t matter to me,” he said. “I’m going to Tennessee as long as the offer is still on the table.”

Zach Fulton's dad said that Fulton will be at UT if Cregg or Chaney are retained.


Thank God VN is working today. That's where most of the info I'm relaying is coming from. Jacques Smith is reportedly wavering for LSU, but he grew up a Vols fan. I'd imagine if the new HC comes in, Jac will stay. He's my favorite prospect in our class too. :(

It's either going to be Auburn or Penn State IMO. The bond he has gotten with the PSU recruits at the AA game really helps them.

i actually think USCe is in it as well just as much. he seems to be keeping it pretty even. NSD might kill me.

We were reportedly looking at him at OL.

When he was recruited lightly at the beginning it was at OG I think. Canes have been trying to add another OL but it's been more LT types. DT recruiting has been really sad though after the Nix/Chandler fiascoes. Went after a few big guys but nothing happened, just took a guy who played 5 games his senior year and none his junior year and the other likely target is a guy who has offers from Illinois State and Toledo. Doubt anything happens with Smith though. :/

As for Lattimore...the majority from what I've seen, still thinks he's SCAR bound. It used to be all SCAR and Auburn but, now he's been having a blast with PSU but, in the end, most think he's still going to be a Gamecock. Max preps had an article just yesterday putting his chances at 70% to SCAR, 20% Penn State, 5% Auburn, and 5% Oregon. And a scout article from yesterday still said SCAR or Auburn were the most likely destinations.

I'm not so sure how much to read into the Penn State stuff but, everything I keep reading is saying that he's silently all Gamecocks.

edit...most people are just talking out of their asses, though. Most Auburn insiders have him at 80%+.

Jamie Wood was their #1 Ohio guy last year. Everyone and their mother knows the top 2 guys in Ohio this year are Jordan Hicks and Andrew Norwell. The third is probably Christian Bryant. Bryant, Ware, Anderson, James all fall in after Norwell and Hicks though. Braylon Heard is far too high.

If he was a silent commit, he'd be commited already. He's said it already and I think that. Apparently Joe Pa is visiting him at his home after his officials. If that holds up, I can confidently say that Penn State could be the team to beat.

I don't think the % is correct from MaxPreps.

Most people think Chris Peterson's just finding hidden gems that are actually talented, but he's really not. He finds players that fit his system. Every single player he recruits has great football instinct and awareness, and he goes from there.

His recruiting classes have never been big, but he finds the right players for them.

That's why I thought and still think that he would need a big time recruiting coordinator if he ever moves to a big name school. And this recruiting coordinator has to understand his football philosophy and work from there.

They're in the running for another top 10 Rivals100 member...who's also a d-lineman. UGA is busy screwing up their search for new defensive coaches when they could be finishing strong, so they can field talent to at least compete with Florida. This sucks.

also on another note... hines, how high is PSU on thornton cause auburns going after him pretty hard too.

All I am saying is don't be surprised if Lattimore doesn't chose Auburn or SCar and goes to PSU.

With Thorton, I have had Penn State insiders who have reliable sources say we might be the favorite. They're usually pretty reliable, so take it for what it's worth. I like Thorton. I believe he could come in right away and compete for playing time as a frosh.

Yes that's it. How did you ever figure it out? I am so bitter that he is going to LSU instead of Ohio State. As a Michigan fan, I am truly jealous that LSU got him. I was looking forward to playing against him every year for four straight years.

He was already a 4-star, but he wasn't even a top five player in Ohio or in the top 100 overall, yet he jumps all the way to #19 overall after a pretty good all-star game. This is nothing new, Rivals always overreacts to the Army All-American game. But to jump up over 100 spots based on an all-star game is ridiculous.

As P-L said, Rivals overreacts to any all-star game performance. It's like when Greg Reid jumped from something like just inside the Rivals 250 to like #20 in the nation. He was more deserving than the others, but had he not won MVP in the UAAA game, he wouldn't have jumped that much, despite being the same player.

Easley deserved his 5th star, but he's probably not a top 10 player.

2. I know you're a Michigan fan, exactly why I said Midwest people and not OSU fans. And exactly why I said you could have your garbage boy Les Miles back.Yeah, but Spencer never seriously considered Michigan. It's not like he was down to LSU and U-M and spurned the Wolverines to go down south. There are ton of mid-west kids that don't stay in the mid-west and I don't accuse all of them of being over-ranked. I am actually glad he went to LSU instead of another Big Ten school. He's a good player, don't get me wrong, I'm just shocked that he moved up so much.

I also find the Les Miles situation hilarious. He's always been a guy who takes too many gambles. When they pay off and it landed LSU a National Championship then he was a God. Suddenly they backfire on him in a few games, and everyone wants to get rid of him. You can't have it both ways. You've got to take the good with the bad. I'd bet that there would be 100+ schools who would take Les Miles as their head coach. Give the guy time. I mean all he's done it won a National Championship just TWO years ago. He's also landed you guys the #7, #4, #11, #2, and (not final yet) #6 recruiting classes.

saintsfan912
01-15-2010, 10:08 AM
The problem with Miles is he has no ability to actually coach those top recruiting classes. The guys don't improve, ever. Patrick Peterson is the only exception, he's just amazing.

By the way, I've NEVER been a Miles supporter. Didn't like the hire when it happened and still don't like it now. People always ask, "Who can they bring in to do better?" Well find a up and coming assistant like Muschamp. Every coach was an assistant at one time or another, thats life. People just don't get it. When you bring in those top recruiting classes and still have the 100+ rated offense in the entire nation, something is wrong. Either Miles has to go or Crowton. And the absolute worst thing about Miles is he was an ex O-Lineman and he can't teach these kids how to fricking block!

glenville people are saying he's "not" going to WVU fwiw. could mean OSU , UNC, or Miami technically. Nothing concrete on his academic situation. I think he could get into OSU, but the chances of not getting into academic trouble at OSU like Rob Rose, Ray Small, and Dareus Hiley did might be the pusher.

Does Trent Fisher play LB like his big brother Branden, or will he be a DB like his father? That's cool though. Hope he makes the team and does well!

As for Ambles, we're introducing Derek Dooley tonight. The visitors this Saturday will be meeting him then, and Ambles will probably get a phone call tonight. Maybe that situation would be enough incentive to visit Tennessee over another school? But like Voodoo, I thought he decommitted by now.

Scout
34th best QB, 3 star, 498th ranked overall

19th best ATH, 4 star, 181st ranked overall

It's still early. Michigan State and Northwestern have been recruiting him the hardest. Cincinnati has also offered.

Anderson is a better fit at safety IMO. Very short (only 5'8.5"), but he has zero experience covering a receiver like a corner does. He could play some offense too.




Also, it looks like Ohio State is getting in on Morgan Moses (who they say would've came to OSU last year if he didn't have grade issues keeping him from having a committable offer). Virginia was his verbal last year, but they have a new coaching staff.

Same deal as Carlos Hyde. His obligation to play at UVA is void since he didn't qualify and went to prep school. He can sign anywhere he wants. Hyde stuck with his initial plan and chose OSU, who also decided to honor their scholarship offer even though they didn't have to.

Well don't feel too bad, as Sanders is a Gator if we ever give him a commitable offer, which I think we will as we start to miss on some of the others on our remaining board. In the end, if he signs with us, looking back there was nothing to do about it because I don't think there's any way he'd turn us down.

Kornblutt ran an article claiming that Mack was "100% USC". The article didn't even have a single quote from Mack making that statement.

In-state pressure is the only reason why Mack was committed to South Carolina for so long. Its also why everyone seems to think Lattimore is some USC lock when this Mack situation should change your perspective a bit there.

Dang, didn't know that. Would've been a dick move, but a WR corps of Markeith Ambles, Justin Hunter, Matt Milton, and JUCO Kenbrell Thompkins would've been insane.

May not've just been a character move by Dooley, but it also keeps Vols spirits high and helps him build more momentum after getting current commits to stay and then still pulling other guys in.

He's likely to not stick with Ohio State, and Florida might not even want him. Even if they do, they made it clear he is a backup option.

His highschool quarterback (2011 QB Mark Leal) and a former teamate (2010 CB Jayron Hosley) also are Hokies.

Would give us seven four star players, not a bad haul at all.
