Surprised Tennessee wasn’t mentioned…

EOE-K did not sign the top 3 players in the state of Tennessee. All 5 stars. Clemon got one and LSU got the other 2. It was the sports headline today in the Chattanooga Times Free Press. But they are ranked ahead of the Hogs in most polls.

Corrected. They’re 14.

I can see about all of those ahead of us being typical, except Maryland. They must have some recruiters on that staff because I wouldn’t expect a recruiting slush fund being available there.

And the Terps got two players flipped away from them, losing them to Notre Dame and Penn State, or it might have been even better. There’s a lot of talent in the Mid-Atlantic area; they got 17 players from the DC area – which of course includes the Maryland campus.

I always have liked Lemming. He’s seen alot of players…I mean alot…

Might be an area we could go after.

RD does it appear to you that Lemming knows the Arkansas kids better? He seems to have a better feel for them.
