"They say it looks like he (Bryce Brown) has been here for a couple of years already," Kiffin said. "Nu’Keese has come in right away, and they say he has had an immediate impact and has done a great job in our offense."
Kiffin said he wanted to throw the upcoming freshmen into the fire when practice starts back. In particular, he said he wanted Bryce Brown to work with the first unit. He said there’s no way you can get a feel for a guy by having him play with the fourth string.
Bryce Brown finally ended the extra-long soap opera that his signing had turned into on March 16. After committing to Miami, his recruitment was still wide open.
Among his suitors were Oregon, Kansas State, LSU, Miami, who may or may not have retracted the offer, and Tennessee, who he decided to sign with.
One of the reasons he decided to go with Tennessee over the others was that he felt they would get him to the NFL. He stated, "I thought they were the best school to prepare me for the next level."
I had to laugh at that a little bit.
