Which high school football team is most likely to win a state championship?

Come on people, show a little class. Not everyone is born to be a Tennessee football player. None of us know this kid or the reasons behind his decision not to come to Tennessee. Maybe it dawned on him how much he would miss his family. Or maybe, as Evan suggested, he had to do with the fact that the kid wants to be on a Christian campus.
None of us had never heard the boy this time last week and now we have so-called fans bashing him for not choosing Tennessee. I'd rather a kid make the wrong choice not to attend UT than the wrong choice to attend UT. It's better that he make the decision before signing day, or in his case, early enrollment than to get to Knoxville and realize he made a mistake.
Yes, the kid's visit was a valuable official visit and it did take up some time of Butch Jones and some of the coaches. But I'd rather him take up the time now and decide Tennessee isn't the right fit than to see him get into spring practice or summer drills and head home.
