    That is correct...

    ^ Thanks. That fact alone might give folks pause when considering the reliability of these sources when it comes to football.

    I have seen to many 5 stars that spend four years in college and don't live up to 5 star. I have also seen walk-ons that end up being All- Conference.
    Alot more 5 star players are all conference than walk-ons. While it is not a full proof rating system it still is a measuring stick and pretty accurate for the most part.

    Gametime, I saw your avatar in a magazine yesterday. I thought the article was about you at first.

    The vols back in the 80s/90s were always in the top 5 almost every year.

    nd same thing.

    I think he will keep his word, can't wait for it to be official tomorrow.

    Scared to death. But like I said earlier he will start for us after Coffee left.

    He also had commited real early for this type of prospect and the coach that recruited him went to the vols.

    He signed!!!!!!! We have a pretty nice group, lost a couple outstanding kids but we are real happy with the kids we got.

    A lot of kids thanked/mentioned Jesus and one kid (QB) drove to another state to stand up with a prospect.

    I see maybe 4 freshmen starting next year if they work hard. We lost one DB on defense and a perfect guy taking his place.

    Two RBs are about equal replacing a player who went early to the pros.

    A huge left OT replacing Andre Smith.

    Two wideouts to help Julio.

    People I can't wait, but I will.
