you're kidding me right? you obviously didn't listen to his radio interview... you know, the one when he flat out said he wasn't going to go to UT until Dave came along.

You can add Andrew Lee as another commit who said he wasn't interested in us until Serrano got here.

Also said that Vandy and Louisville were after him as well. So that would make two guys that Vandy was after that we got and yet we aren't going to be able to compete with them even though we are after the same guys?

Brilliant.

I've tried to talk Gant into considering UT again since Serrano is here.

Seems pretty solid to Vandy though.

Edit: No worries, I'm not a stalker. We're friends..I caught him at Riverside his freshman and sophomore years.

I got to meet Colton Harris tonight. Said he loves Coach Serrano and genuinely believes they are about to turn things around. Great kid.

"CBT: #Tennessee has landed arguably the nation's top JUCO player, plus commits for #UCF #AppyState #EIU. Rogers' College Premium Forum - Perfect Game #Vols #SEC"

Anyone know who it is?

My guess is one of the 2 JUCO commits reported from last week in this thread.

Adam Giacalone is a pitcher/first baseman who was a JUCO All-American last season and throws from the right side.

He went 10-1 with a 2.10 ERA in 83 1/3 innings for Neosho Community College last season. He also struck out 83 and walked 14 and teams hit him at a .229 clip.

Giacalone batted .396 with 18 home runs and 102 RBIs.

Giacalone was courted by several programs, such as TCU, Texas A&M, LSU, Auburn and Nebraska, among others.

Looks like Adam Giacalone is correct based on his twitter feed.

https://twitter.com/#!/adamgiacalone

That means Serrano got 3 JUCO commits in the last week, and one is considered in the top in the nation. Exciting!

Wow. Thanks, Jordan. I was about to ask you on twitter. This is a huge pickup. I am so excited about the future of this program.

As am I! I LOVE baseball, I use to go to A LOT of the games when Delmonico was here then stopped when Raleigh came (couldn't stand him). I can't wait for the season to start, Serrano was a HOMERUN hire.

Yea. Ironically, I wasn't really a fan until '09. I was at every home game Raleigh's middle two years, knowing how much the kids needed support; feeling their pain, having been down there in '08. I couldn't make it to a game last season. Just didn't have the stomach to continue to watch the train wreck.

To see this program be headed back where it belongs, means the world to me. And I don't want to imply that a Serrano run program guarantees wins. What I mean is that he will demand respect from everyone in the country in every aspect of college baseball. That is what matters to me. Serrano gets it. He has made me feel more welcome in this baseball program now than I did as a PLAYER under Raleigh. Waaay more welcome. That means so much to me specifically, but it also has huge implications for everyone who wants to be a part of this program. You will be welcomed with open arms now and in the future. Fans, players, donors. Nothing goes unnoticed. That is HUGE. I am so happy with this staff.
