Bryce Brown Coming to UT

Bryce Brown, the nation's top rated recruit has just signed a letter of intent to attend the University of Tennessee. The highly recruited running back had previously announced that he would attend Miami where his brother Arthur Brown is a star linebacker for the Hurricanes. Rivals.com and numerous other scout services have him rated as the No. 1 high school prospect in the nation. Looks like that top notch recruiting staff that coach Lane Kiffin has put in place has started to pay big time benefits for the Volunteers.

Sometimes these bigtime recruits don't work out, though. By many accounts of this guy, he could be trouble. Not that he will not be a great football player, but reports have shown that he is selfish and not really a team guy. Plus, all this drama waiting and waiting and waiting to sign. He may not be able to handle the pressure in the SEC as a result. Time will tell, but I have my fingers crossed. Just don't jump the gun yet.

WOW, what a huge pick up for the new staff. If these guys are able to coach as well as they have recruited we should expect some great things to come. Considering how late they got into the recruiting process, to land a top ten class (according to rivals and scout.com) is unbelievable!

Orange Swarm is coming! Get in your houses and deadbolt the doors. Coach Kiffin and Crew will be playing for SEC Championship in 2 years! Bama and Florida fans, get your licks in now because they will be hard to come by later!!!!

I mean who would not choose Tennessee over Miami. Playing in the SEC and probably given the chance to earn a starting role as a freshman where the U is loaded at running backs this year and years to come.

Miami is not the Miami of Warren Sapp, Michael Irvin, etc... years. Randy Shannon is a great person and a great coach but the ACC is not the same as the SEC.
