From Lance Thompson:
"I would tell him, ‘Congratulations, but I’m looking forward to the day that we play.’
"I don’t care where I’m at. I’m always going to be looking for the day we play Lane Kiffin."
"It happened in a matter over three days," Thompson offered. "I wasn't looking to leave Alabama. I was happy there. We had just won 12 games and went to the Sugar Bowl. We were 15 minutes away from playing for a national championship. I had no reason to leave Alabama. It was coach Kiffin.
Now Lance Thompson, Rivals' recruiter of the year in 2008 after he landed 6 four star commitments and 2 five stars (including Julio Jones) for Alabama, is headed to Tennessee. Barely three weeks from signing day. Why is this important? Thompson already has three five-star commits this year and is working hard on two others.
