In the VolQuest Blue Water Climate Control podcast mailbag edition AP said the Vols have climbed back in the mix and it will be a “head vs heart” decision. Head says Bama or Clemson, heart is saying UT.
The heart is deceitful above all things,
and desperately sick;
who can understand it?

Doesn’t bode well for us guys. 😬

My thought process:
  • Ty grew up a UT fan, and wanted to go to UT
  • The offense in place when it was Ty's time to commit was awful
    • Just god awful
  • Pruitt recruited him hard, developed a relationship
  • Pruitt recognizes that the offense is a problem
    • Promises to hire Ty's dad to seal the deal
  • In December, Ty was 100% to UT
  • Pruitt gets fired because he's a moron
  • Ty is upset; his dream of going to UT and playing for his dad is up in smoke
    • Also his favorite coach just got fired
  • He reaches out to Bama, Clemson, Ole Miss
  • Bama loses Sark
    • Ty doesn't know BOB; the BOB offense doesn't look fun
    • Plus, BOB is gone in after Ty's freshman season when an NFL job opens back up
  • Clemson is not in the SEC
    • Also weird
  • Ole Miss would be fun, but it's too far away
    • Also weird
  • Heupel is hired; makes Ty a priority
    • Heupel shows him that he's going to throw for 5000 yards in this offense
  • Ty starts to warm back up to UT in late January/early February
    • Tells reporters he is "65% sure" about which school he wants to go to
  • Over the past two weeks, Heupel has talked with him daily
  • Ty comes around, realizes that rebuilding UT is what he wants
    • Begins dropping the "I can go somewhere and be just a guy, or go somewhere and be the man" quotes
  • Ty makes the decision to commit

Uhh you realize Ole Miss is only 3.4 hours away from Martin, TN right? Lol for reference Knoxville is 4.55 to 5 hours away.....

Funny thing is if he picks Bama or Clemson it won’t really be a big deal to either fan base. Just another drop in the bucket.

But if he picks us it would cause a cataclysmic boom that will reverberate for the entire year and if he has just a decent career he’ll never have to worry about being successful in any field for the rest of his life.

Your choice kid.
If Ty committed to UT (and I don't think he will), it would be huge in generating some positive recruiting traction and momentum for the new coaching staff. However, I think this kid is overrated.
