if roles were reversed. there'd be 50 flags thrown on TN ranging from illegal blocks to out of bounds, targeting, personal fouls, coach on the field, fumble out of bounds, helmet off, time expired, and excessive celebration...10 of them.
“I've got a leader in mind,” Eason said. “I don't want to commit (yet). I really don't want to. I want to do something special just on signing day. But I will let that school that I will be going to them. I’m just not going to make it public to where people know. My signing day’s going to be kind of big for me.
The Vols have told Eason that they envision him competing for early playing time in the middle of their defense.
“They want me at Mike. They’re telling me they want me at middle linebacker — coming in, controlling the defense, bringing some energy to the team,” he said. “That’s all what I’m about — being a leader and just playing football, doing what I do best.
“They said I could play if I come in and work hard. They told me off the jump, even though I’m needed, nothing was going to be given to me, so I’ve got to go in there and work for it. But I love that.”
He said he's going to commit to a school privately but won't make it public for others. So yes, he'll have a spot. He'll have it saved when he commits to the school. Unless the school doesn't honor it, of course.
