Vonn Bell, the 5-star safety from Ridgeland, nearly committed after the completion of his senior season. One of the main reasons he waited was to give a fair shake to his childhood favorite, Tennessee.

“I waited because I wanted to go visit the campuses again, and give Tennessee a chance because they lost their coach at the end of the year,” Bell said. “I want to give everybody an equal and fair shot.”

How does Bell feel about the Volunteers? “They’re in a slump right now but I think Butch Davis … I mean, Butch Jones, is the guy that will bring them out of that slump.”

So you think an 8 or 9 year old would follow the NFL and then know enough about the players and where they played college ball?

I think sometimes us old timers forget how young these kids are and have to realize they followed a much different UT than we did.

No I don't think that. But I do think when a kid hears "former UT and NFL cornerback" it resonates. And even 18 year olds that grew up in TN or in homes that cheered for TN fan may recognize the name.

Maybe it was just a slip but it could be a sign that they don't have much of a relationship....yet.

He did not forget his name. He/she is just trying to be cute. They always have to get something negative in there.

"he's going to be coaching me" sounds like his mind is already made up.

It may be at this point. But, he's given UT the chance to convince him otherwise. All anyone can hope for. Go Butch!
