Make way, make way… Tennessee recruitin’ is back, y’all!
Jones arrived from Cincinnati without anything close to a national championship on his resume. He was best known as the guy who followed Brian Kelly.
He was a Michigander with no Tennessee or even SEC connections. But he has sold Tennessee as though he were a direct descendant of Davy Crockett.
Granted, commitments don’t equate to signees. National Signing Day is months away, and there’s a daunting 2013 season in between. But if Jones and his staff were capable of convincing so many sought-after recruits to commit, they’re capable of holding on to most of them.
Just remember, it’s the kids changing their minds and decommitting who are the real scourge of college recruiting these days.
