Tennessee has always recruited what the services say are the best players because 80 percent of the time the services are right. Some players that play at small schools or don't go out on the summer circuit can slip through the cracks and not get rated or get rated as a three star or lower because no one has taken or had the time to watch them play. The truth is we very seldom recruited Tennessee players when Pat or Holly coached here.. I can see this staff taking somewhat of a new approach as we've got three or more Tennessee players on the radar that will be coming in future years. Every big school has a list they start out with and they hope to get three or four players off that list. When that fails they have a few backups so the class does not go empty. I think you should have a list of the top 10 players in Tennessee and have the Assistants take a look at all of them you may find one or two that are just as talented as the players on the services lists who the services did not know about and never scouted.
