And all of a sudden, we're dillon-happy. Welcome Tennessee's newest signees, running back Jabo Lee (from Dillon High School in South Carolina) and offensive guard Dylan Wiesman.
JABO LEE 5-8, 172 RUNNING BACK DILLON, S.C. (DILLON HS)
Chose UT over: East Carolina
RATINGS: 247 three stars; Rivals three stars; Scout three stars, ESPN three stars
QUICK LOOK: As running back targets fell off the board, UT went to one of its backup plans. He may end up being a steal. Lee is now expected to qualify -- one of the things that led to teams such as Virginia Tech and South Carolina, who'd made early offers, to back off -- and he decided to leave his East Carolina pledge to come to UT. Lee has an incredible film, and he's got that elusiveness and North-South running ability you don't normally see from someone so small in stature. A knee injury limited him to just 130 rushing yards last year, so he's definitely an untapped commodity. It will be interesting to see how he plays out, likely being the only running back in this class.
DYLAN WIESMAN 6-4, 313 OFFENSIVE GUARD CINCINNATI, OH (COLERAIN HS)
Chose UT over: Cincinnati, Ohio State, Ball State, Boston College, Bowling Green
RATINGS: 247 three stars; Rivals two stars; Scout three stars; ESPN three stars
QUICK LOOK: The interior lineman had an early offer from Sam Pittman and the other staff, but he elected to stay home and play for Coach Jones at Cincinnati. When they left, he decommitted, and it wasn't long until he joined them in Knoxville. Many star-gazers weren't thrilled with UT for taking this commitment, but Wiesman is tough and the coaching staff absolutely loves his nastiness. You know who else loves him? Urban Meyer. Ohio State gave him a firm offer just days before he decided to come to Knoxville. This is a kid who could enjoy a lot of playing time in Knoxville, regardless of ratings.
