From a pure talent standpoint it sounds like a good grab.

Jones has recruited alot of those kids and this kid was an AU recruit and now UT has AU staff member on it. So they had no issues before so I doubt now they do as well. But a lot of schools including many SEC schools(except AU) backed away from these kids. Just saying

Sec

Ironic Bama is so pius now about recruiting. This kid with a redshirt year, putting on some weight and conditioning, will be an excellent player.

We took a DT (Blackson) a couple of years ago one of those schools and he started this year.

Will visit UCLA and Tennessee before NSD, as well. Sounds like we could land this one.

Coach Thigpen stopped by to see Jahmere today. He will "certainly consider" the Vols moving forward, according to VQ.

The kids meet in a storeroom in his business and the football coaches are their class coaches to help them in the classroom. I would be weary of any kid from this school.

AU, USC, and WVU have been recruiting them hard, and many players will end up at DI programs. The players come from several states but play football for the school.
The school founder is the father of David and is also the adopted father of Jahmere.

His goal with Red Lion was never a secret. He was trying to take kids with no hope of going to college and get them into college. He thought the best way to do this was putting them in school, tutoring like crazy (so that they can get into college), and trying to get them football scholarships (so that they can pay for it). He'd bring in kids from the bigger cities in the area (like Philadelphia) with bad home situations and have them stay with local folks in Delaware so that they can go to a better school and hopefully get them out of the ghetto.

A lot of the other schools in Delaware took exception to this because it broke their rules on recruiting high school athletes. That was the scandal. And it might've, I don't know how their rules were written. But whatever happened, it was done for the purpose of getting kids into college.

The big scandal that hit the school, if I understand correctly, was regarding funding and didn't have anything to do with the football program. But it did cause the football program to get cut.

So a bunch of kids were left without a place to go, and David set up a virtual school with online classes supervised by an on-site tutor.

Just thought I'd give the rest of the story.

If there was actually an offer, it got lost in translation, but if the Vols are interested, I'm pretty certain that Tennessee will get a hard look. It'll be all about relationships at that point. The family really liked Chizik and Thigpen at Auburn. Planning on visiting in January. Hopefully Coach Jones can also make a good impression.
