Rivals #7 WR Markeith Ambles Commits to Tennessee

We're back to good recruiting news (thanks to Rusty and VolBrian for linking the news here), and there's a lot to like here (including just the kid's name alone).  Markeith Ambles of McDonough, Georgia has committed to the Vols for 2010, giving the class a big boost as the Vols continue to search for a quarterback.

Ambles is 6'2", 182 lbs and caught 53 passes for 933 yards as a junior last season, and was recruited by Lance Thompson, who helped the Vols pull him away from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State and others.  He's a four-star player according to Rivals, who has him listed as the 7th best WR prospect in the nation.  Ambles is the first WR commitment of the 2010 class, and will become the Vols' highest rated commitment on the board.  Under Kiffin's administration, the Vols have done incredibly well with offensive skill players, and Ambles name is a fine addition to the list that already includes Bryce Brown, David Oku and Nu'Keese Richardson.  Good times are ahead for this offense, quarterbacks of the future... 

UPDATE:  Check out some great quotes from Mark Farrell's story at Rivals' main site ($):

"I'm going to recruit for my team now," he said. "They think I can help with bringing in a quarterback and I think I can help that as well. I'm going to start making some calls right away and I need to get myself a Tennessee hat now and wear it wherever I go. I'm a Vol now."

Check out Ambles' profile at Rivals here.  VolQuest has more info on Ambles' commitment ($), including quotes.  Hooper's got you covered on the soon-to-be-updated Recruiting Map.

UPDATE:  The Recruiting Map is now updated.  I didn't mention it earlier, but you can always download the Google Earth application for Tennessee Recruiting in 3-D!  -hooper
