I tried my best to get UT to recruit Whit Taylor back in the late 1970s ( 5'10' 175 lbs ). I was told he was to small plus he had had shoulder surgery and the staff didn't want to take a chance on him. The rest is history, he was all SEC and ran up 985 yards total offense against UT his last 2 games against UT. He also passed for 10 TDs in ONE game in arena football, a record that stood for many years. My point, He always loved UT and wanted to play for them but never had the chance but proved himself to be a WINNER because he had the desire and heart. This kid seems to be cut out of the same mold. He WANTS to play for UT and has a lot of heart. I had rather have a kid like him ( who will only get better ) than some super star who you have to beg to come to Tennessee and will be gone in 2 years.
