Tuesday: Hold the Door
- Morning all. Butch Jones nabbed his eighth player for the 2017 class Friday, as Clearwater HS (FL) WR Jacquez Jones (247 3*) announced his commitment via Twitter, selecting the Vols over Louisville, Wisconsin, and Miami, among others. Early going yet, 247 currently ranks the Vols '17 class at 28th in the country.
- As your antidote (or whatever) to last week's deluge of hype, here's CBS's Tom Fornelli listing Tennessee at #3 in his top-5 list of most-overhyped preseason teams of 2016. Ooooon the other hand, Fornelli listed Alabama as his #3 most-overhyped preseason team last year, so, yknow, make of that what you will.
- Following a tough, error-filled game, Tennessee's softball team couldn't maintain a 3-1 lead over Arizona and was knocked out of the NCAA Tournament Sunday, losing 4-3 in extra innings. Tennessee ends the season 43-16. :(
- VFL Nia Moore has secured a deal to play professionally in South Korea, which is pretty cool.
"I had it somewhere in the back of my mind that I'd like to go overseas and have a new experience," Moore said. "I'm ready to explore the world."
