Butch started by thanking everyone on the staff for helping them bring "21 new individuals" into the program.
Butch: Despite some obstacles, UT just signed a "great" class with "loyal" kids.
Butch: None of these kids have played a down of college football, so I can't tell you who will play how much and when. Everyone develops differently.
Butch Jones: "We were extremely selective in this process. We have a formula."
Butch Jones just made four of the Vols' five early enrollees stand up and introduce themselves to the media. Jalen Reeves-Maybin's in class.

Pretty cool thing he did with EEs
Butch Jones: 8 of Vols' 21 signees were committed other places at some point.
Had to overcome long relationships there.
Butch Jones: "Everything is competitive in the SEC. ...Everything every day is fourth-and-1 for the Super Bowl."
I feel like this is going to be something we see a lot of during his tenure.. He was big on this with his sons introducing himself.. It shows me that this dude really treats his players like his real sons.
Butch Jones: "Every great program goes through trials and tribulation. The storm here has passed."
What he just said about Bell was AWESOME!!!!
Butch Jones: We put as much effort into Vonn Bell as anyone in the class, but I want to talk about our Volunteers, not someone else's kids.
I hope he is right.....
It will eventually pass, just depends on whether Jones is around to see it or not
Butch Jones: "We only had two quarterbacks on scholarship here. I'd never even heard of something like that."
dont give Bell anymore attention, lets move on
Putting it simply, Butch Jones loves the two quarterbacks Tennessee signed today.
Butch Jones: Since 1926, no program has won more games than Tennessee. That's a great story. We need to get that out there.
Butch Jones: "I said it in my introductory press conference, and I'll say it again: We have to own the state of Tennessee."
Butch Jones: "People in this great state are proud of their Volunteers. I learned that very quickly."
Butch Jones: "You have to have a plan and follow the plan and not deviate from it."
Butch Jones on turning Top247 QB Joshua Dobbs: "Persistence."
He said it's the most thorough family he's ever recruited.
Butch Jones: "Marquez North brings a size element and he can run."
Butch Jones: We never promise playing time. We promise only an opportunity to compete.
