National Signing Day: Can Tennessee Win The Day?

It's here. National Signing Day. And in the last 36 hours or so, Derek Dooley has taken a class from solid to very solid by adding three four-star players. The Vols begin the day ranked #12 by Rivals and #10 by Scout.

And Dooley still has an opportunity to turn "very solid" into "fantastic," as Tennessee is in the mix with several blue chippers still on the board. Yes, Tennessee has a full class already, but there are certainly contingency plans in place for if we can land some of said blue chippers. Here's a list of those guys and their expected announcement times (all times Eastern):

  • 9:00 a.m. -- Lamar Dawson (4-star LB, 3rd ILB in the nation, appears to be between Tennessee and Kentucky)
  • 10:00 a.m. -- Antonio Richardson (4-star offensive lineman, 7th OT in the nation, appears to be between Tennessee, Georgia, and Auburn)
  • 11:00 a.m. -- Timmy Jernigan (4-star DT, #2 DT in the nation, appears to be an FSU lean, but Tennessee is reportedly in the mix)
  • 1:30 p.m. -- Gabe Wright (4-star DT, #10 DT in the nation, appears to be between Tennessee and Auburn)

I actually have to work today (boo!), but Will's in the saddle, so we're all in great hands. There are going to be a lot of posts going up here today, and finding the conversation may be a bit chaotic, but we'll do our best to direct y'all from one post to the next. The initial plan is to post separate threads for the above announcements, generally 15 minutes before the announcement, but with the first going live at 8:30. We'll direct folks from thread to thread via links in the comments.

Enjoy! And Go Vols!
