Vols turning inward
Those with loyalty to Rocky Top have shown cause for things to look promising in Knoxville.
Tennessee has used lifelong ties to its football program to get off to a hot recruiting start with regards to the class of 2007. UT could use such connections to have even more success in the coming months.
The Vols' current commit list of four consists of two wide receivers, one athlete that could play offense or defense and one talented two-way lineman. Two of the prospects are from the Knoxville area, one is from the Nashville area and the out-of-stater is from Michigan.
The Knoxville-area prospects are athlete Anthony Anderson and wide receiver Tyler Maples. Both grew up dreaming of playing for Tennessee. Anderson played a number of positions for Austin-East High and likely projects as a defensive back because of his excellent ability to break on the football. Maples plays wide receiver for local power Maryville High, is very shifty and has good hands.
The in-state commit that could have the highest rating is wide receiver Todd Campbell from Franklin, a suburb of Nashville. Campbell is a gamebreaker for his high school team, has good size, speed and confidence. He also has long arms good hands.
