Today On Rocky Top: Where Will Josh Malone End Up?

From TN Sports Radio

Josh Malone is about to let everyone in on the secret.

The highly touted receiver from Gallatin (Tenn.) Station camp has kept a tight lid on his recruitment, especially lately. The 6-foot-3, 195-pound prospect has taken a businesslike approach to his recruitment. He hasn’t offered a list a finalists. He hasn’t even offered many hints.
Malone, who will enroll in January, is thought to be primarily considering Clemson, Florida State, Georgia and Tennessee. Here’s a breakdown of his final four:

Anna Bozard has been a Peyton Manning fan all her life, so when it came time for her wedding, there was never any doubt she was inviting him.

The question: Would he even respond?

On Monday, five weeks after the card was due and three weeks after the wedding, a written response from the Denver Broncos quarterback was picked up by Bozard’s mother in the mailbox at her Virginia home.

Manning filled out the RSVP card, checking the box that said he’d have to “regretfully decline.” But he added “Best wishes” and signed his name, along with his No. 18.


From Bleacher Report

Tennessee’s football season ended about a month earlier than what it had hoped, but at least it ended the way the Volunteers wanted—with a win.

With very little to play for, at least UT can take solace that a victory helps Butch Jones sell the direction of the program to recruits moving forward.

A week after Vanderbilt was the beneficiary of an overturned spot and used it to stun the Vols and knock them out of a bowl game, UT kept playing hard. And for the first time since October’s stunning upset of South Carolina, the Vols played well, too, beating Kentucky 27-14.
