Maybe we get Alston now but I really wanted North.

North basically eliminated UNC because he didn't want to compete with all the WR's there, he was guaranteed playing time with Tenn and not with UNC. That's the biggest reason he selected Tenn over UNC.

Wanted to add for those that don't know UNC is down to 19 scholarships for this recruiting class, so really only one spot left for UNC to fill.

LSU commit Tevin Lawson was asked to grey shirt with LSU and didn't like it, he's talking around and was contacted by UNC.

I'm sure that was a selling point for Butch Jones. Glad to get something good out of losing Justin Hunter and Cordarelle Patterson.

This will be a fun week. It always is. It's a chance to gain a little hope for next season even if this past one was terrible.

We have a few battles going on with Auburn for players, and a battle with Alabama for 5* Safety Vonn Bell. Is it Wednesday yet?

Wild weekend in recruiting this week! Reuben Foster may (or may not!) have been called a racial slur at Auburn, and ends up leaving his official there to go to Tuscaloosa. And speaking of Auburn, they did manage to lock Carl Lawson back in, when everything pointed to him heading to Tennessee. A'Shawn Robinson decommits from Texas and now the word is he will sign with Alabama. Oh and speaking of wild, OL Denver Kirkland's scholarship offer is pulled by Miami for waiting to long to commit, and now they may have doomed their chances with 5* LB Matthew Thomas. Oh and speaking of 5* players, DT Eddie Vanderdoes is heading to Alabama according to Bama websites which is funny because the reason he decommitted from USC was because they started recruiting A'Shawn Robinson at the same position. Less than 48 hours until signatures start rolling in should be fun.

Nope me either, congrats to the Noles on the huge pickup. Really didn't see the Ramsey's playing a family friend in Tee Martin like that....

I agree. Having a shot at Ramsey was one of the main reasons I was hoping for Tee to come back to Knoxville.

Yep, I like most people figured when Tee decided to stay Ramsey was a non issue, the "lock" on NSD if you will. Even as late as early last night the USC insiders were certain Ramsey was coming to L.A. Even LMIII (who committed and early enrolled to play with Ramsey) said he was sure Ramsey was coming and that he talks to him on a regular basis. Absolutely shocked at how this one unfolded honestly....
