We got another for defense. I love how commit after commit, and even the recruits we whiff on talk about how REAL our staff is. I wouldn't be shocked if some of the good ones we whiff on, end up decommitting elsewhere and coming to the Vols after all for that very reason.

The guy plays at McCallie School in Chattanooga, so he is a smart young man. Plenty of time to gain another * or two. McCallie has won the Tennessee private school football championship for, if I'm not mistaken, 3 consecutive years. Very good program.

Grant Williams chose UT over Harvard. Seems to be doing fine.
So glad he's doing fine. However, like I tell wife Shirley when she throws out buts, and alter-facts, one size doesn't fit all. You will always have exceptions, and that dadgum thing called personal preference. Me? Umm. Much as I love my Vols, I'd pick Harvard too as the degree would mean much more. AND, here's a secret, restrained Mormon girls' and rich Harvard gals' curiosity results in their being adventurous and experimental. Plus, if you're good, you likely have a valuable someone you know when looking for lucrative employment. No sir, one size doesn't fit all.

We agree. I’d choose Harvard too and I bleed orange as much as anyone. But UT was Grant’s choice and the right fit. May it also be a great fit for Gentle. It was his choice.

Is Baylor/McCallie still a big rivalry up that way? Haven’t kept up with the Chattanooga scene much the last decade or so.

Gentle is one of those names that doesn’t inspire the same dread as say „Slaughter“ does it? 😉
But what’s in a name? Glad he is a Vol commitment

As I've posted elsewhere, Carson is part of an exceptional and gracious family. Tennessee fans will enjoy reading about and getting to know them.

His older brothers were outstanding players, but word around campus was--even when Carson was a freshman--the youngest Gentle is gonna be something special!
