see in orange.
I am going with Von Bell, I think he is a star in the making, it would be a huge statement for a kid that grew up a vol fan, didn't get the attention that he should have got from the previous staff and the new staff has made him a top priority. To go from an Alabama/tOSU lock to a Vol would make my day, I would have the biggest grin coming signing day,
I want to see this kid in orange. Lawson would be 1B because of the need at that spot. Plus he seems like a great kid with a good head on his shoulders.
Robert Nkemdiche for 500, Alex. This guy would make the biggest statement. He is elite at his position. You said I could wish
Butch Jones. Who???
"Count it down with me. Five, four, three, two, one.
The national champion is clad in Big Orange!"
I guess it depends on how well your wish-granting abilities are, because I'd love to have Nkemdiche. But if we are talking realistically, I want Lawson bad
"Give him six" "We don't give a damn about the whole state of Alabama" "Grit N Grind"
Ding Dong.... BELL!!! I feel that he would be the foundation to get this program back up! Good topic!!
Green - just believe it to be our biggest position need!
I'm bouncing back and forth between Green and Lawson, and I won't decide. I want both and we need both. Doesn't mean I don't also want North.. he'd be a great addition but WRs generally don't impact the outcome of football games the way RBs do and I also want Bell. We desperately need Bell, but safeties generally don't impact the outcome of football games the way DEs do.
Give me Green and Lawson.
One place in my mind where I find security over the possibility of not signing Bell is the fact that Todd Kelly and the Berry twins are in the 2014 class. I know they aren't locks, but that thought gives me hope and don't you dare try to take that hope away from me!!
I wish for 25 more wishes, that way I can pick and choose each individual player in this class. Seriously though, either Bell or Lawson would be fine with me.
Carl Lawson. IMO, the kid is a program changer.
if i could have anyone..Derrick Henry. Amongst the players we have a shot at - without question, Lawson. He looks unblockable on film. How long has it been since we have had an elite edge pass rusher? Lawson is that guy.
Gonna go Lawson though I want Bell. If Bell doesn't commit to us we still have Randolph and McNeil. Also have great shot at TK jr as well. I definitely want him.
Nkemdiche seems like a Prima Donna. He could be amazing or an amazing bust.

Lawson all the way. Yes our secondary was atrocious last season but it definitly had some to do with our nonexistent pass rush. I mean u can't cover guys back there all day. We need to give opposing qbs a time limit on how long they have to get the ball out. Plus I think mcneil and randolph are going to be studs.

This combined with the hope of signing TK and the Berrys next yr. I think we will be fine at S for the next 4 years.
Lawson and Green. Lawson and Green
I am going to go a little different direction with this question. I would prefer Lawson but it sounds like he is not going to announce on NSD. Therefore, I want Vonn Bell to be on ESPN and to have a Bama hat and a UT hat and put the UT hat on for the whole country to see. I really think that this program could use a "moment" like that where a top recruit picks UT over a top 5 or top 10 program and it is on national TV.
