Is it just me, or does it seem now like what we've been missing the last couple years in recruiting (other than a solid on-field product, of course) is current players and commits recruiting for the Vols? I can't remember anything close to this level of excitement coming from current players and commits towards other prospects. I know we had a little bit at the end of guys trying to get in Vonn Bell's ear, but nothing close to this. It really is fun to watch UT get hyped so much from these kids.
Recruits recruited other recruits is the best form of recruiting that there is. Look at Ole Miss for example. They got some big commits, those players got to talking to other big players, and they signed a huge class. Another example is the famed Georgia "Dream Team" signing class from a couple years back when they signed Crowell and a host of other big time Georgia players.
We have been operating with the "Legacy Class" mantra, and I expect to see a top ten class because of this. TK isn't going anywhere, and this alone is like a beacon of light for the other big time players to come check out Tennessee in the coming weeks and months.
Butch Jones. Who???
One more example of why Butch Jones "gets it":
Coach Jones just gave me a list of of players he wants me to get to become Vols, I'm on the hunt to get those players!
I really think we will be the Ole Miss of 2014. We may not have the #1 class in the country, but there's going to be a lot of buzz about UT, and recruits are going to want to be a part of the class everyone is talking about.
This is exactly what you want..to become the "hot" program where recruits want to be..which must then be parlayed into wins to continue the momentum.
