Lane Kiffin put down his first fence post around the state of Tennessee yesterday. As he promised he would to keep, the best instate talent at UT in his first press conference. When dynamic Hillsboro corner back Eric Gordon committed to UT. The 5-9 185 4-Star prospect said Kiffin was his main reason for picking UT. In addition, Kiffin has told another quarterback prospect that was recruited by Fulmer and his staff that he would not be a good fit for his offense. Bryce Petty of Midlothian, Texas was told in a phone call from assistant coach Jason Michael that he would not be the best fit at UT. While he still had a scholarship if he wanted it, it was obvious to Petty it was time to de-commit. This makes one hope that Kiffin has a surprise QB commit coming so that UT can avoid a repeat of last year’s QB debacle.
