Today On Rocky Top: Tennessee Volunteers News 4/4



A pair of Tennessee recruits from the state of Oregon dished out a dose of double trouble for the West squad at the McDonald’s All American Games on Wednesday night at the United Center.

When Justin Worley learned his first collegiate offense, he was the new face in the meeting room.

The quarterback began his Tennessee career two years ago, when he enrolled early and went through spring practice behind Tyler Bray and Matt Simms, two older quarterbacks with an established knowledge of offensive coordinator Jim Chaney’s system.

For college football fans, springtime is about anxiously awaiting the coming season, reading sparse updates on practice and occasionally hearing about a nice commitment here or there. For the Tennessee Volunteers, the third has been the most exciting.



Wes Welker said Wednesday in an ESPN Radio interview he’s had a chance to speak with both his new quarterback, Peyton Manning, and his old one, Tom Brady, since his decision to leave the New England Patriots to sign with the Denver Broncos.

On Wednesday, the Tennessee Volunteers got their seventh commitment of the 2014 class (and their sixth in the last month) when four-star cornerback D’Andre Payne gave Butch Jones his verbal. Payne’s pledge gave Tennessee their fourth commitment from a member of theRivals 250 and moved the Vols up to No. 4 in the 2014 team rankings.

All told, five of the top six recruiting classes in the country in the Class of 2014 call the SEC home, with Texas A&M currently holding down the nation’s top class. As of April 3, every single SEC school had at least one verbal commitment, and the conference as a whole has 65 commits, including a staggering 30 players in the Rivals 250. The 65 total commitments is more than double any other conference in the country except the ACC who comes in with 37 total commits.
