http://knoxblogs.com/evanseleven/ten...ence-position/

Is tennessee saying that they only signed 25 recruits this cycle and that 8 of the 33 enrolled are grayshirting?
Bold is correct. This is how it was explained to me. They had the regular 25 plus 5 EE (max number per year) plus 3 that either didn't qualify or were grayshirted.

Okay, I haven't followed recruiting as closely as I would like this cycle, so could someone give me a run-down on how our class could finish?

Thanks!

Playing around with the 247 class calculator. Right now we have 18 commits (247 does not show Jerad Washington as a commit) with a team score of 230.63.

If we were to close out the class with:
-Zack Bailey
-Marquavius Lewis
-Dante Sawyer
-Jerad Washington
-AJ Turner
-Davon Durant
-Damon Arnette
-Bradrick Shaw
-Jalen Merrick
-Irvin Charles

Our team score would be 261.35. I looked back at the past 5 years and this would be good enough for the 10th best class in the country or right on the verge of it most years. Now obviously we may lose some commits, get some we don't expect, guys move up/down in ratings throughout the year, but I just thought it was interesting to see that we are on pace to finish with a top 10 class and the names listed we have a very realistic chance of landing (or players of similar quality/ranking). I think it's more likely we end up with a top 10 class and not a top 5 where we are now, which is still very good and would be our best class (score wise) since the 2007 class.

Thx. That would be great if he could get in early, as I think it would give the staff more time to evaluate him and put him where he'll be the most productive. As alluded to in his interview, the only problem might be that 3 coaches will want him playing the position they coach (Jr., Grady Brown, and Botkin.)

That's a pretty realistic list. Don't think Durant ends up here unfortunately, but I think those are the most likely guys at each position. Then again, there were some major surprises in the last couple of weeks, so who knows how it will end up.

If so, that's not finishing at the RB spot as well as I was hoping.

It's not who I'm projecting we get, more who I think we have the best chance at landing right now. Things are going to change. I'm sure we won't get all of those guys and we will pick up some who arent on the radar now. That's just how recruiting goes. I was just trying to see if it was realistic if we could finish with a top 10 class and those names we all have a legit shot at landing. We very well may take more than 28 players too and may have some decomitments.

I can't see us taking Washington and Charles, I think we need a DT in this class still whether its Jones, Huggins or someone else. other than that I'd be happy

According to GCC Washington is a commitment. He isn't a commitment according to TBS. Weird situation. Whatever the case, I hope we land Charles. That would give us at least four WRs, with the possibility of Johnson being a WR as well.

I agree about needing a DT. I don't think it's going to be Huggins though. Wideman could grow into a DT and solve that issue though.

Don't forget Terry Googer 6'4" 210 will be starting out as a WR. He's a very good athlete and could be a wild card for us this year. Probably a RS in 2014, but we'll have to wait and see.

good list of 10.....added to our current 18.....we still have the ability to add 2 more on top of this. Instead of showing just Merrick, I would add 1 of Merrick, Womack or Pellage.

This is TM's impression of how we would finish our class.

Running back - 2
Wide receiver - 1
Offensive guard - 1
Offensive tackle - 1
Defensive end - 2-3
Defensive tackle - 1
Linebacker - 1
Cornerback - 2

That's either 11 or 12 making our class 29 or 30.

I agree with you 100%.

Problem is it's very, very doubtful we get Huggins, Jones could go any number of ways & I haven't heard of a single high caliber DT where there is mutual interest coming from the prospect & USC. To me, a high ceiling HS DT is much needed for down the road. I'm just not real confident we're gonna meet that need in this class. Seems much more likely it might have to be an under the radar guy. Still plenty of time though, lots of things will change between now & Feb.

Apparently Washington was very impressive at the latest camp (in Columbia) and it's very likely his commitment will be accepted.
