While I think TN would have offered Crane (his being similar to Cochran's recruitment last yr), targeting and keeping in-state talent should be a priority. However, having a constant presence and developing relationships, particularly in West Tennessee and Mid-to-West Southern TN along border states, and winning will entice premier in-state talent to stay and sign with Tennessee, IMO.

Just for fun, I like to tweak the setting on the recruit search on Rivals.com. When I first heard about Crane and us not offering I went to Rivals and looked up the top Cs in the country. As of today, Billingsley is one of the top Cs in the 2013 class (try this link). Just so happens that he's the teammate of Christian Morris.

Per 247, Billingsley said he soon expects Tennessee to offer. His parents are Tennessee fans, he is going to visit w/in the next few weeks w/ his teammate Christian Morris.

I still like Crane better at the C pos. than Billingsley..
And distance may have been a risk and us already having similar talent here in the state but I think we missed out on one..

He said he’s already somewhat familiar with Tennessee, and he’s hoping to accompany teammate Christian Morris — a three-star offensive tackle who’s ranked the state’s No. 9 prospect — on an upcoming visit to Knoxville to learn more about the Vols. “Me and Christian are planning on going up there in a couple of weeks, just for a visit,” said Billingsley, who has played some at tackle out of necessity at East but is viewed by most schools as a center or guard prospect.

He said last week that he doesn’t “have a leader yet,” but he recently has told 247Sports that Ole Miss is “at the top of my list.”

Sounds like he may commit soon. He said its a 60-80% chance him and Herbert Moore commit to the same school. Moore committed to Ole Miss last night.

@iGrind_Hard_: Talked with Coach Elder from UT earlier

Apparently Elder called him today. Teammate of Morris.

Hubbs is trying to find out more.

Back in the summer I was interested in this guy because of his speciality. That he’s a teammate of Morris at one of the more talent-producing schools in Memphis doesn’t hurt at all.

So we would be looking at picking up Billingsley & Morris and passing on Kondolo? Maybe Skipper plays into it as well?

Because Billingsley’s a true inside C-type, I think it’s just trying to shore up Morris. And if they can get a pure center AND a stud tackle, then it’ll be a good package deal. I think it’s just to the “getting interest gauged” stage at this point.
