Rocky Top Talking Points: recruiting, creepy but woooooo!!! edition

  • Wooo! National signing day! UTSports.com has an all-day ticker so you can keep up with all of the latest newest Vols. Of course, you can also find great stuff at Rivals.com and Scout.com .

  • MapGameDay has been busy and will be even more so today. You've probably already seen his recruiting maps via the Wiz or Every Day Should Be Saturday. I was going to link to Tennessee's after signing day, but just so I don't appear to be too uncool, here it is now.

  • The current list of commits we're hoping will actually ink today:

    Assuming these guys sign, the class includes six, count 'em six, five stars, according to Scout.com (Marvin Austin, Eric Berry, Chris Donald, Ronald Johnson, Ben Martin, and Brent Vinson, per Scout.com (Vinson's not on my list, as he committed last year, but didn't qualify and so went to Hargrave Military Academy), and, according to Rivals.com, five five-stars (Berry, Donald, Vinson, Martin, and Kenny O'Neal. The drama for the day centers around four-stars Ahmad Paige, Brandon Paul, and Dwight Jones, among others.

Update [2007-2-7 7:22:10 by Joel]: I don't post at work (unless it's already been pre-written and it's just a matter of hitting "publish"), so do us all a favor and keep everyone informed by leaving comments as the drama unfolds today.
