Tennessee Lands 4-Star DT Sawyers

PLAYER UPDATETennessee is the only school in the nation that will have to replace every starter along both its offensive and defensive lines next season.  Out of 125, the Vols are the only ones facing that huge challenge.

So receiving the faxed paperwork from 4-star defensive tackle Michael Sawyers out of Nashville is a big catch for Butch Jones’ monster class.

Vanderbilt fans have to be disappointed.  Not only did Sawyers decommit from the Dores once James Franklin left, but now he’ll be facing them every season decked out in bright orange.

Kentucky Shows Off New Chrome Helmet On Signing Day

Eventually we’ll get to the point where each school has a different helmet and uniform for every game it plays.  At that point, hopefully, people will realize how silly the current trend of gaudy, goofy uniforms is.  Think 1970s and 1980s Major League Baseball bad.

Despite our disdain for uniform overkill, we are partial to chrome helmets.  They look pretty snazzy on the field.  Well, usually they look snazzy, not always.

Today, Kentucky unveiled its latest lid and, yep, it’s chrome:

Now, just what color uniform will they wear that with?

LSU Lands 5-Star WR Dupre

PLAYER UPDATEFinally. One of the River Ridge, Louisiana four has actually decided to stay at home and play in the SEC.

Receiver Malachi Dupre — ranked as the #1 receiver in the country by ESPN; the #2 receiver by Rivals — elected to stay at home and play for LSU.  After three of his teammates elected to play West Coast football, Dupre drew the loudest cheers of the day from his classmates when he slipped on his purple and gold cap.

Great get for a Tiger offense that will have to be rebuilt this fall.

Oregon Land S McGraw… That’s 3 Louisiana Kids From One School Heading To The Pac-12

PLAYER UPDATEThe Pac-12 has grabbed yet another star football player from River Ridge, Louisiana.  Safety Mattrell McGraw — a 3-star prospect — selected Oregon over Texas A&M, UCLA and Arizona.

Two of his teammates had previously picked Oregon and Stanford as their college homes.

The Pac-12 had a good year on the football field last season.  The league might have some more good years to come if they continue to put down a pipeline into states like Louisiana.

Pac-12 Schools Swoop Into Louisiana For A Pair Of Stars

PLAYER UPDATEUCLA has slipped into Louisiana and made off with the eighth best player in the state today.  Linebacker Kenny Young — a 4-star player — picked the Bruins over nearby LSU, as well as Texas A&M and Ole Miss.

This just moments after his River Ridge, Louisiana teammate Terrence Alexander picked Stanford.  Alexander is a 3-star cornerback.

Interesting, folks.  Kids from the SEC footprint not landing the SEC?  Whazzupwithat?

OL Prince Chooses Maryland Over Florida, Carolina (And, Yes, Maryland)

PLAYER UPDATEOne of the nation’s top offensive lineman has picked the Big Ten over the SEC.  Tackle Damian Prince committed moments ago to Maryland — his home state university — over both South Carolina and Florida.

Gamecock and Gator fans have to be disappointed in losing a 5-star O-lineman to Maryland, even if that school is in his own back yard.

Bama Can’t Swing DE Thomas

PLAYER UPDATEIn the end, Al Golden and Miami were able to hold onto a big-time defender.  Chad Thomas, a 5-star defensive end, recently took a visit to Alabama, but in the end the Crimson Tide couldn’t swing him.

Thomas signed with the Hurricanes today.  He’d been a Miami commitment since July so it’s not a shock that Bama couldn’t bag him.  Still, plenty of Tide fans had hoped Nick Saban could pull this particular 6-5, 240-pound rabbit out of his hat at the last minute.  No go.
