Tough break for Tennessee.
Senior Writer, govols247
While no one ever proclaimed Nichols to be a Vol lock, recruiting experts around the Southeast liked Tennessee's position the entire time. I'll be interested to know what went wrong for the Vols -- or what went right for Memphis. I'd imagine location was a major factor. Still, I'm pretty surprised by this decision.
freaking A, and so begins another tough week as a UT fan. On to the next one I suppose.
Wes, any idea where the final scholly may go now?
You've got to be kidding me.
If Momma ain't happy...ain't nobody happy.
Maybe this is it. Wow, this one is surprises me. Gotta love recruiting...
there's no "next one". In the sense of a player anywhere near Nichols caliber for this class.
Just talked to Mark Nichols, Austin's dad. Said they spent the past week assembling a 58-page report on all options. Settled on Memphis.

Agreed in terms of talent, but at the end of the day we are going to need a big. Maymon, Hall, and Miller graduate. Realistically, Stokes will leave early. That leaves Yemi as the only post player on the roster. So I ask again, what other options are out there?
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
Well we got one out again this year its a start fellas. Gonna be hard to crack that town too many anti UT people.
Why the hell would anybody see any promise in going to Memphis? They have a loaded roster every year and do nothing with it. Oh well on to the next one.
Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.
Nobody in the top 150 at that position. A poo-poo platter of 3 star guys.
We played around with Schuyler Rimmer, an ex-Florida commit. He has scheduled visits to 4 schools not named TN.
Treshawn Bolden has been mentioned.
This site shows a kid named Nigel Hayes, but it doesn't look like we are in the thick of it.
I would expect Martin to try and get back in on Rimmer or hope for an opening with a spring player (though that has not been his MO). Otherwise, I would expect a player about whom at least one of the initial stories mentions that Martin doesn't pay attention to rankings.
