Quote:“I’ve never gotten a prospect sheet from Tennessee,” Mariakis said.
From what Mariakis said, Dooley and his staff merely continued the approach Vols staffs have taken for years. Even Phillip Fulmer, who was known for dotting the I’s and crossing the UT’s in recruiting, dropped the ball.
“Sometimes people get on a high horse or a pedestal,” Mariakis said. “They seem to be saying, ‘If he’s a Vol fan, he’ll come to Tennessee.’ That’s not how recruiting works, especially these days.”
-- Claims this was going on during Fulmer's reign... yet we know CPF got 5 star recruits all the time (most seemed to never live up to the rating, but he got them). Seems this HS coach has a bit of a bone to pick. But, in any event, the former staff should have known about this kid and made inquiries.
I don't see CBJ as overlooking any of these details. More power to him moving forward. He brought his whole defensive staff for an in-home visit with Vonn Bell.
