Quote from Carl's dad - "No, this is not going all the way until signing day,” said Lawson, who played football at Georgia Tech. “I can’t give you a date but it’s not going until then (Feb. 6)."
There is a rumor floating around that Thigpen and Carl's dad are long-time acqaintances and that Thigpen will visit him on Thursday.
Carl will be in Knoxville Friday-Sunday and Butch still has an in-home remaining. This is looking more and more like a Tennessee-Auburn battle, so Butch may try to use his in-home, while Tennessee has momentum, to convince Carl to cancel his Auburn visit. We'll see.
If the thing about Thigpen and Carl's dad is true, I like our chances. How awesome would it be if Lawson commits to the Vols next week?
Busy, busy week for 5
Carl Lawson, who is ranked as the nations No. 2 overall prospect by ESPN, will have a busy week before he leaves on Friday for an official visit with Tennessee.
Great stuff, 28. I like that he's not dragging it out til signing day, cause it could definitely sway the momentum in our favor.
Reading between the lines if Carl doesn't commit next week to us, it won't be us. If he still plans on taking is Auburn official visit on Feb 1st, and is announcing before NSD, he will go to Auburn...
If we could get Lawson next week, and have him recruiting for us I think that would only help with other highly rated guys.
I will do back flips if he commits, no matter when that happens...BUT, i 100% agree that getting a commitment from a 5 star like Lawson as early as possible can build a lot of momentum and make other significant recruits take notice...IF he is going to commit to us, the sooner the better..I assume he'd like to get the best players possible in his recruiting class...
Your team. All the time.
More awesome than Eddie Money running a travel agency. +1
BUTCH IS NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. GO VOLS!
