Tyndall continues to patch together his Tennessee hoops team

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Talking Points rounds up the day's news, including Donnie Tyndall continuing to assemble his team.

FOOTBALL

The Big Orange Caravan found its way to Memphis Monday night, and both Butch Jones and Donnie Tyndall used the opportunity to attempt to lay claim to Memphis as Volunteer recruiting territory.

Congratulations to junior offensive lineman Kyler Kerbyson, who's been named a 2014 Hammer Strength All-American. The honor goes to student athletes who "exemplify the best of what it takes, on and off the field, to become an elite athlete," and are selected by their school's strength and conditioning staff.

ESPN has a nice feature on receiver Marquez North (and BONUS, includes a link to video of that South Carolina catch), and another on former Vol Dwayne Goodrich, who just graduated as part of trying to put his life back together.

Don't miss Will's history of Vols football players who have left early for the NFL Draft.

HOOPS

Tyndall has added guard Devon Baulkman to the basketball team. He's coming from Gulf Coast State College, and he'll be a junior with two years of eligibility remaining. Tyndall's also received a commitment from power forward Willie Carmichael, who originally signed with Tyndall at Southern Miss but will now follow him to Tennessee.

BASEBALL

The baseball Vols beat Morehead State 14-13 in the longest game in scchool history last night, a game that lasted nearly five hours.
