Which one of our currently committed guys are you excited to see play that's rated a 3* or lower?
For me its between Paul Harris and Riyahd Jones.
I feel like Paul Harris is very underrated. He's extremely fast and has great size (6'4 !95). He'll obviously put on some weight, but he has the upper-hand being an EE. With his size and speed he almost reminds me of Justin Hunter, but in his film he shows he can go over the middle and make catches (which seemed to be one of the knocks on J-Hunt this year).
Riyahd Jones to me feels like he is playing with a chip on his shoulder. I've heard him say not to judge him by his high school performance because he has gotten better. He will get a chance to prove that early, especially, with our secondary struggles. He seems like a very hard worker and a great athlete.
Honorable mention: Woody Quinn & Riley Ferguson
Who ya got and why?
Lemond Johnson excites me the most. Dude is a beast! I don't know where Coach Butch wants to play him. But I have a feeling he will excel anywhere.

Harris and Sutton. If Sutton can be a great corner that will fill a big hole. Harris' size and body control are gonna be fun to watch. If he has great speed sky is the limit. Next Hunter?
Also add Lawson and Bell. Haha
I am also looking forward to seeing Jones and Harris. I think both could contribute this year and both could turn out to be steals.
But I'm probably most excited about watching the career of JRM. This kid defines the type of players we need in this program to get us back. He bleeds orange and is one hell of a ball player.
As for our current targets, Bell probably excites me the most and will become my new leader in the excitement category if he does indeed choose us, with Lawson being a close 2nd.
Jalen Reeves-Maybin is a football playa. He will be our honey badger
Sutton on defense and Josh smith on offense. In think Josh smith could be a pretty damn good player.

Woody Quinn. I want to see how well he adapts to big time tight end, one of the biggest x-factor positions
Corey Vereen. I think he is going to develop into a great LB for UT.
Forgot about him, he could be a serious weapon.
I was most excited about Dan Skipper, before he flipped. I mean, I don't think I've ever seen a 6'10 O-lineman before.

Jonathon Ogden is the only other one I can think of and it worked out ok for him.
I hope GoVols2011 doesn't see this. I really can't take another one of those threads.
I'm VERY curious about Quinn.... Not to see if CBJ & Co. is right or wrong on him, I'm just curious to see how athletic this kid is and the potential that may be there!!
Quinn and R. Jones
Quinn- want to see his athletic ability on the field with some Div 1 coaching!
Jones- had me hooked when I watched his work out video and saw his work ethic!!!
I agree Mrytle Harris/Sutton!
Paul Harris. Him or Riyahd Jones. Harris and North would be one heck of a 1-2 punch at WR.
