Yea really depends on how well Butch was able to make up for slow playing him and if the now new found want/need of Austin came off genuine enough for him to feel comfortable passing up a great option at South Carolina.

It is a lot harder decision than we think it is. Go to childhood dream school that hasn't made you a priority that has a very stacked depth chart at your position or go to another great school in their division that has made you a priority day one and has a favorable depth chart.

I can see why the SC situation is tempting.

Chris Clark feels like USC has a small edge based on he knew what he wanted to do before his last min visits last week.

If he knew what he wanted to do after our visit, I don't think he would have taken any more visits. Looks like UT was slow playing him....I remember reading up to the time when he visited us, nobody knew if he was a take for UT. After our visit, I think they called him, told him to visit again and offered him then. So his choice between the schools is early playing time/better depth chart (we win), wants to go to the school he loved growing up (UT wins). The reason I believe he wasn't a take before our visit, if they had already offered him, I doubt he would even visited us.

I still think he's going to UT honesty, but Clark thinks it's USC.

He got really harsh reviews from the Rivals 5 star challenge and our VQ guys said again that they just can't see him being a T at the next level.

It just feels like they are trying to send a message.

Uh, I understand the first sentence. But what do you mean by the second? A message? From whom, to whom, and what are they trying to say? Because I sure don't get it.

As to this kid in particular... I dunno. Obviously you don't always get the guys you recruit, but I can think of four five guys listed on this board we have offered that seem like they are better bets to translate to the next level. We have Palmer and one Louisiana kid. Aren't we in it for another one from there? A tackle? I really like Louisiana kids, they feed them right.

I wouldn't think we take more than five this year, and we have two signed now. Really like to see Bailey and Sandifer sign, but you never know.

We need tackles in this class, whoever they may be. Milton is a guard, as are Sandifer and Hatton if they come here. Who knows about Bailey-could be a guard or tackle but is listed as a guard on the recruiting sites.

After Clark, McGirt and Merrick are the only true tackles left on our board.

Well Paul Fortenberry Mod on VQ has been saying consistently that TN is in a big need for T's. He has said all along TN's concern is that Clark won't be able to be a T in the SEC. Now a few days after Clark says we told him how much we want him to the media, Paul reinforces again that he thinks he won't be a T at the next level.

Our VQ guys send subtle messages like that giving hints. So I am wondering if we really truly do want him and that he could very well be announcing SC Thursday.

Or our coaches may just really want him and you all will win him outright...it is just strange to me.

Trying to read tea leaves is hard.

He's from a small town in s/w Va.....my guess is his competition level isn't very high which means he's probably behind other kids that play against a higher level. And maybe he's just not quick enough to play OT in college.....doesn't mean he can't play inside.....although, at this point, we need tackles more than guards.

Yea we need Tackles. I'd assume Elliot thinks this kid can play T in the SEC unlike the Vols

Chris Clark is friends with the Vol insiders on rivals, and they think Clark is picking us. If true, this is a big time get for us....ranked 7th best OT in the country, and a position of need.....so somebody thinks he can play tackle.
Throw in Palmer, Bailey, Milton, Hatton and/or McGirt this may be the best OL class ever at Carolina.

I would lean toward him picking USC at this point too, just the vibes I'm getting.

He'd be a good pickup no matter what OL position he ends up playing.
