The Tennessee Vols want You and You and You!

Kiffin’s Crew Has 187 Offers out to 2010 Recruits

Proving that uncoventional is his conventional, Lane Kiffin has ordered his staff to go out and get players and they have done that. Tennessee has issued an ungodly amount of offers to the tune of 187. The Vols are going to juggle 25 signees out of 187 offers. Like everything else Kiffen has done since landing in Knoxville, the results of this will be interesting. Rival programs can go nowhere and pursue no one without hearing the name Tennessee.

If putting the pressure on recruits by putting out a bunch of offers and getting commits is the objective then Tennessee is accomplishing that. They currently have 7 commits from the 2010 class. However, are a bunch of early commits the key to a great recruiting class? Could the Vols be forced to pull some offers later on and face some backlash? Again, stay tuned as this well get very interesting.

Below is a list of the 187 players that Tennessee has made offers to as of 5/29/09.
