Tennessee safety LaDarrell McNeil admits his head was spinning at times earlier this year, but he now finds himself in the Vols' starting lineup as a true freshman.

Lilke this kid. His high school film was awesome. Big hitter. Maybe he struggles as a freshman, but really, things can't be much worse anyway. So, if he shows promise, let him play and get the game-time experience.
He has a bright future and another off-season in the S&C program will help him also. McNeil is gaining valuable experience that will help him next season. The secondary will be better next year as Gray gains experience. The LB corps will improve. Hopefully UT can keep Miles in the fold too.
You know, things haven't planned out like we thought but I'm getti.g the impression were actually building depth and good sound players, our defensive players are young and this system isn't easy. Should Dooley have implemented this thing this soon? I'm not sure but why not do it when you've got an offense who van post big numbers and the defense is relatively young. Maybe this will get results. Dooley always says he makes decisions on the long term future of the program.
Really like this kid. I too am surprised to see him starting this year. Good for him.
