And speaking of Charlie High and local players, what about the Howell kid--I think that's his name--that Charlie threw to? I believe he set the Tennessee HS career record for pass receptions. He too has been called too small and too slow, but the kid can get open in a phone booth and has great hands. Some posters have made a good point that college coaches feel they will be unfairly penalized by fans for recruiting marginal players who don't pan out while getting a free pass for signing guys who everybody says "can't miss", even though some of them DO miss all the time! But when all is said and done, a coach has to have the courage of his convictions and live with his decisions whether they work out right or not. As someone else said, in effect, if Butch is going to sign 2-stars, why not take a chance on LOCAL 2-stars who grew up bleeding Orange? Maybe that kid's coach will remember that, and when he has a 5-star, he'll do his best to steer him to UT.
