It's been reported that Michigan plans on taking only 1 DT.

Good and bad, yes. But, what makes you believe that trend ends with O'Brien?

Give me your reasons why he signs with UT over Michigan. And for the love, don't bring up hunting.

This isn't philosophy, this is reality, take a bite. Might open your eyes a bit.
We did sign a top level DT recruit last year, open your eyes. I don't think O'Brien is looking at our past recruiting going, damn UT hasn't signed a bunch of big time DT's the past couple years, don't want to go there anymore.

And fwiw UT has signed a 4* DT the past two years.

Also, if were using your method, then there is no way Kimbrow, or any other good player can sign with Vandy this year. Look at it like that and tell me its not dumb, Vandy will sign some good players this year.

I didn't say I think he will sign with UT over Michigan did I? So truly I don't have to give a reason why. I don't know where he will end up, nor do you. But I can say this, he has a good relationship with the coaches, likes the campus, and feels comfortable here.

Yeah JUCO's can be fliers, CDD has said so himself. He doesn't want to go that direction unless necessity dictates.

I want UT to sign a few quality DT classes before I start to feel better about UT's interior DL. It's not easy, DT is the hardest position to recruit, just seems we've missed out on too many of these battles the last few years.

What do you think about the impact Malik Jackson has had at DT? We'd be in a lot more trouble if he didn't transfer here.

That's better than being called dumb I guess.

I just prefer to base my reasoning on reality, not wishful thinking.

Having said that I hope we get O'Brien, just think Michigan has the advantage at the time being.

Lots of things change in recruiting, so you never know. Keeping my fingers crossed, he's going to be a good player.

Don't want to even think where our line would be without him, scary thought. Even more of an indictment on how bad our interior DL recruiting has been.

Maybe a great DT haul this year will change UT's luck.

Yeah, it would have been terrible. Losing JC Copland (IIRC) to LSU the other year hurt pretty badly. Also, injuries have hurt the depth on the D-line. Losing Montori didn't help things either. That said, we have room to take several DTs this class. And fortunately, the class is pretty deep on DT talent.

There is no denying that the DT and LB recruiting as a whole has been very subpar the last number of years. Somehow they are going to have to figure out a way to close on some of these big-time DT's and LB's or the guys they bring in will be nothing more than fillers to the guys they will be replacing.
