Never said I was ok with it. I'll admit it's pretty sad. I really feel for the guy. He was ready to play in orange and was as solid as they come. But recruiting can be a very dirty, unpleasant business and sometimes guys get recruited over. It happens at all top programs. it's just the nature of it.
Either way Ford will be a heck of a lineman at Rutgers if he chooses to stick there. Butch certainly could have handled this better though. But hell there have been guys told to walk on signing day. Not the first time this has happened. If a school like Florida or WVU comes calling close to NSD I doubt he signs with rutgers.
+1 Fair enough. I'm interested to see how Tennessee closes out the rest of its class.
I also wonder if there will be any decommitments? You did just lose your OC, and sometimes players will also bolt if their favorite coach leaves. I wonder if UT will hire internally or bring in a new OC from the outside. Lurking Tennessee boards, I saw Zach Azzani (UT WRs coach), Sonny Cumbie (TCU co-OC and QBs coach), and Calvin Magee (Arizona OC) as some potential options. I don't know much about Azzani, but Cumbie and Magee would be good replacements.
