But has he been in a real strength & conditioning program? And is he done growing? Probably no and no. If he's still running 4.5 at 200 lbs then I'm pretty sure measurables alone will get him looked at. A lot of kids get their peak speed in their Senior season anyways.

This kid was also a complete animal on the defensive side of the ball too. Had 4 ff and 4 ints. 3 of those turnovers return for touchdown. This kid is a definite take for next year IMO, seems to have a real knack to score no matter what position he is playing. And Tyrann Matthieu only runs a 4.51, he's just got that "it" factor. It seems up to UT on just whether or not they want the kid or not. He's pretty much a vol already.

I know we are very interested in two running backs in the 2013 class from Tennessee, Cornelius Elder and Jordan Wilkins, but I'm sure there are more.
