Kameron Miles will probably not end up playing for the Big Orange. who else do we lose?
Not many that couldn't be replaced. Give me JRM, Ferguson, and Carr and I wouldn't really care who else left.
Josh Smith and Cameron Sutton are both play makers. I'd also like to see them stick to their committments. Our O-Line class could be pretty good with some development as well. What's the deal with Camion Patrick? Not exactly the type of kid you love to see on the commit list IMO
Yeah drizz I want Cameron sutton that dude is legit
Yea I forgot about him, and he has been awesome and with a extreme need I should've included him. He seems like a real good player

All good man yeah he has been lighting it up and I jalen has told me he will play the star position but that's subject to change
^^^ This ^^^
If the coach is not a big name, can't miss, home run hire (not named Cutcliffe), you lose most to all of them and finish out of the top 25 in recruiting.
+1 and I agree on adding Sutton. Would also like to hang on to Miles.
If it's not a HR hire, which there are very few that we even have a slight chance at, then we lose quite a few and end up out of the top 25. I think JRM and the Knoxville boys stay on with any coach though.
Will stay committed no matter who is the coach:
Camion Patrick (but probably won't make it in)
**little side note- look at that list. These are all guys that grew up TN fans. They are committed to TN, not a coach. Keeping the brand strong and keeping in-state talent in TN is CRITICAL to success. Vonn Bell, come on down.
I feel pretty good about these guys staying, but not quite as much as the group above:
Paul Harris - he's made some pretty firm statements about shutting down his recruiting and enrolling early.
Riley Ferguson - if he wants to play in the SEC, pretty much has to stay. most commitments are locked up.
Cameron Sutton - just a hunch.
Shakiest ground if a coaching change happens:
The Hutchinson guys (this is just a guess, but it seems like our connection their is mainly based on relationships these coaches have developed.)
The rest of them I really don't know enough to predict one way or the other, but as has been said, no one else is irreplaceable. A new coach will bring in new excitement and recruits of his own, so I would expect the losses from losing this staff to be cancelled out by the relationships a new coach brings in.
I'm not sure Miles sticks with his commitment regardless. Fear the 12th man in this situation.
Uhhhhhhh......depends on who we hire.
Bingo. Everything is fluid in recruiting.
