Four-star JUCO defensive lineman DeVonte Lambert has committed to Tennessee over a list of schools including Florida, Arkansas and Auburn.

Four-star JUCO defensive lineman DeVonte Lambert has committed to Tennessee over a list of schools including Florida, Arkansas and Auburn.

Tennessee took a major step Tuesday toward addressing one of its most glaring needs in the 2014 class.

Four-star defensive lineman DaVonte Lambert of Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga., announced Tuesday morning that he has committed to the Vols, giving them a potential impact player capable of making up for Tennessee’s expected losses of six senior defensive linemen after this season.

Kid must be pretty good to make up for the loss of six senior defensive linemen all by himself. No pressure though.

Just poking fun at the writer's hype:

"Four-star defensive lineman DaVonte Lambert of Georgia Military College in Milledgeville, Ga., announced Tuesday morning that he has committed to the Vols, giving them a potential impact player capable of making up for Tennessee’s expected losses of six senior defensive linemen after this season."

A little over the top, wouldn't you say? I'm fairly optimistic about highly rated recruits, and I hope this kid is the next Reggie White, but I don't expect he will be capable of making up for 6 graduating senior linemen.

Did you ever hear of Cam Newton? What about Patterson last year? JUCOs are fine with me. Shows Jones is trying to win right away.

You pitiful little punk troll.

Any good news for the Vols is crushing to an idiot like you. You do all you know what to do.......making sure everyone knows how silly you sound with your obsession.

No. He's never heard of those guys. He's football stupid.

Get used to having Tennessee taking recruits from your Georgia Bulldogs. That's 5 from the state of Georgia now. Georgia has 9, but 3 of them being 2 stars.

Yawn! Version 5,792 of the same boring diatribe. You need to work on originality, troll.

When's the last time Tennessee lost 10 or 12 oral commitments, Jeffy? Like, "never"? As negative as you are, you have to pray for decommitments of that magnitude, because if it doesn't happen, you'll drown in your own bile.

These kids committed to Tennessee after two straight 5-7 seasons. They intend to turn us around. They're not expecting miracles this season. So another 5-7 record won't be enough to change that many minds; it'd probably take a 3-9 season (or worse) to have that big an impact on our recruiting. And that isn't gonna happen.

There won't be any Gary Kreis fake catches, this year, when the Dawg juggernaut turns Neyland red. Butchie is going to get his SEC comeuppance Silver Britches style. Look for an 81 revisted. We might even bring our own hedges, just for nostalgia's sake.

If we're talking dirty about screen names, not sure where to start with yours, pole boy.

If you understood my post you would know I was not making any judgement about the player, but rather the writer who said the kid will single-handedly replace all the D-linemen who graduate after this season.

Why am I explaining this to someone who either can't read or can't comprehend what he manages to read?

There won't be any answers coming from you either, Jeffy, I suppose. Just in case you forgot what I said:

"When's the last time Tennessee lost 10 or 12 oral commitments, Jeffy? Like, "never"? As negative as you are, you have to pray for decommitments of that magnitude, because if it doesn't happen, you'll drown in your own bile.

So another 5-7 record won't be enough to change that many minds; it'd probably take a 3-9 season (or worse) to have that big an impact on our recruiting. And that isn't gonna happen."

So your response provides two observations:

(1) Because you now realized how utterly asinine your original assertion about massive decommitments was, you pulled another nonsensical comment out of your butt to "respond"; and

(2) You've tipped your hand, once again, that you're not anywhere near to being a Georgia fan. Nobody but a washed-up Vol benchwarmer would talk of Gary Kreis, who hasn't played for the Vols in 40 odd years!

You have a real problem, Jeffy, OTHER than the obvious deep-seated psychological issues you carry around with you. Your problem, from a troll standpoint, is that other than your overused pedantic rants against Dooley, Sunseri, and/or Hart, you've got absolutely nothing to offer. You're lost in your own written diarrhea.

How sad is that, that you can't even meet the low standards of being a troll?

Dawg juggernaut?! "Chuckle" that's the best example of an oxymoron I've heard in long time. Smoke much? FYI: your boy richt is the reigning king of taking some very talented teams and coaching em up to underachiever status. Great job. Lol

IDK where this typical thing came from? happens a few years in a row and its like we have the tradition of UK. Almost as funny as UF fans believing they're the all-time leader in wins or something....

what happened to that fence that was supposed to be built around Georgia to keep people like Tennessee out? Aside from Florida, Georgia players are by far the least loyal to their state.
