Arshad Jackson
Tyler Boyd (Committed to Pittsburgh, but who cares?)

Who else? If we even landed 50% of those, it's an amazing class, especially with the ones we already have enrolled.

And who do you think we get from that list?

Nobody can say this staff isn't doing work. I haven't seen recruiting like this since the California Raisins were at UT.
Feel like we get these guys. Any of the others are possibilities obviously but I feel really good about where we stand with the bolded guys.

The powers of persuasion are at work, may the force be with our staff.

That's what I was thinking. That would be six from that list, plus our current commits would make it 24.

doing work and getting the job done are 2 different things.

This staff has really surprised me. They have done a great job in the little time they've had. Whether we get 2 or get 8 I will be pleased. It seems like every time I turn around Thigpen is communicating with one of these elite players. I realize it's a team effort, but he has certainly stood out. The relationships and work effort he brought with him are invaluable. And on top of that he has been praised as a good teacher of the game as well. Best hire on the staff IMO.

I'm wondering why recruits are committing to the U when they have NCAA knocking at their door.

Getting the visit puts us in play.

Where has this staff gotten us?

Getting visits is nice, but until they close the deal with more than a few, I'm skeptical. They got some visits? So did Dooley. I see nothing that leads me to believe this staff can recruit at a high level.

I'm sure staff is really worried about that.

your damn right they are worried about it. without excited fans in the stands jones will be in serious trouble. it's early yet, but little excitement out there. just billboards around knoxville saying how we will rise again.

I believe you and I have the same opinion. But funny how phrasing gives you what may be the essence of NegaVolism.

I would have said, "The staff has done a great job of getting some top-flight recruits to visit. Now let's see if they can close the deal. Given the current state of Tennessee football, if they could do that, we would have good reason to believe better times are headed our way."

Have you seen anything that leads you to believe they can't?
