Did we really not pursue that guy?
Not doubting you, just can't believe we didn't.
Willis and Hightower were as bad as it gets. Fulmer wanted Hightower at H-back.
A little guy with a lot of production in high school. They fall through the cracks till you have a shitty year and just need to fill spots.
Most programs have a set standard that they want in a recruit and if they don't fit into that box on height and weight, it's rough to get on the radar.
Lot of names that dodged a bullet in this thread.
Did not want. Too ugly.
Tennessee never tried very hard with him
Daniel Brooks or Patrick Willis? We'll take Daniel Brooks.
Dontari Poe wanted to be a Vol, but Tennessee didn't pursue because of grades
Mackenzie Alexander is a pretty recent guy people forget was committed
Hightower was all Bama from the get go. Pretty sure his family were Bama fans
Pennington wouldn't have started over Manning or Tee, though.
Nope but successful nonetheless.
EJ Junior was as good of a Nasvillian as I recall us passing on. Watched him as a little kid in the Clinic Bowl. He was Maplewood’s everything.
JJ McClesky was not offered a scholarship but he came to Tennessee as a walk-on.
his son wasn't offered either and has @ 15 tds and 70 catches for first down in 3 years at ok st.
Cedrick Wilson Jr had 1,500 yards this year and will get drafted from Boise.
Would have been another Tinsley anyway. We didn't use the kind of player except for a random gadget play
I believe it was Tinsley who ran the end around to surprise Miami down in that shithole stadium. Great call by Sanders. Don't know if this was rumor or fact, but supposedly somebody asked Sanders why he didn't run that Tinsley play more often, as it was the first time we had run it all year. Sanders responded, the more times you run a play, the better chance the defense has to stop it..
