Poll: Where in the rankings will Tennessee's 2014 recruiting class finish?

See the results »

View previous polls »

Eric Lauderdale was tempted to wait a few more months to see what other teams might offer and perhaps visit a few other colleges before deciding where he wanted to play next year.

He decided Sunday there was no need for that.

The four-star rising sophomore wide receiver from Saddleback College in Mission Viejo, Calif., verbally committed to Tennessee on Sunday night, choosing the Vols over Miami, Arizona State and more than a half-dozen other major-conference programs.

Just throwing this out for discussion, but I noticed on Rivals.com that none of the big schools offered him...only us. There were numerous offers from mid-majors though. Wonder why? Grades? Attitude? Size (he's not very big).

Still, I saw his highlight video and he looks like he has potential.

I actually think UT brings a whole lot more(legitimately) to the table than your post have brought in the past...........Some people just feed on dishing out negativity like sharks feed off blood in the water.............

I'm at a loss to think of another fan base - in all of sports - that has less reason to smack talk than Vanderbilt. Really? Vanderbilt? OMG!

Your trash talk is cute.

Crafty...normally, I charge for consulting services, but I feel sorry for you as you CLEARLY are a rookie. You have no CLUE as to the proper way to get under the skin of a Vol.

You did list a nice group of top rated schools, especially the one from Title-Town, but by NOT mentioning your OWN school of VANDY, you let a great opportunity to twist-the-knife. What were you thinking!

This service has been brought to you by ZZ, the most hated poster on the Vols website since it came into existence.

Actually Gomer, you are considered the most ignorant not the most hated. You and Crafty sound a little bit alike ( Neybob, Voles). Are you sure you are not answering one of your own posts from KNS cubicle? Sounds similar to a name you invented for an Oregon fan ( SpecQuackular ) a few years back.

Please make sure you take out the Trash and shine John Adams shoes before you leave tonight. Also clean out the Fridge, Professional Handicapper left some Hummus in there and it is starting to reek.

I noticed that comment as well. Could be misconstrued....especially in the SEC.

either i'm wrong about what i'm about to say, or people just don't want to realize how recruiting works, but isn't it right that schools are only allowed to visit/recruit a certain limited number of athletes per year? ya can't just go recruiting hundreds of kids all willy nilly. the reason why some of the aforementioned schools haven't recruited our newest commitment is because they couldn't? that's my guess. 'cause they've already contacted and recruited their allotted ammount for this year. i could be wrong, but i'm guessing that i'm not. that, and the positions of need come into play, too.

GREAT pick up for tennessee, nonetheless!

go vols!

A very small, little man whose life is misguided alone derives pleasure from annoying others as they have no other means of deriving joy from life. Ever contemplated why this derangement gives you satisfaction? Looking for joy in all the wrong places? I'm just really hoping you are CUBICLE MAN!!!!!! A kns plant whose job description states creating a mania/hostile zone to promote usership etc.............

Not sure why all of you respond to the sad little Vandy fan. When Vandy becomes relevent and beats more that 2 teams with a winning record in a season then he can say something. Until then they can continue to be the joke of the SEC

Crappy Commode Dore,

How's Candy? Oh, I forgot about the players little Jimmy Franklin had to boot from the team. That must really suck. Too bad for the Candy Commode Dores.

Would you like to lay some cash on the outcome of the TN-Candy game this year? You like to talk big, but no stones to back it up.

Get used to your Commode Dores getting that arse kicked on an annual basis again and Jimmy the ARSE jumping ship before it sinks in a year or so. I can't wait to watch the Vols kick the phooey out of Candy this Fall!

Until then, stick that anchor where the sun don't shine!

You're probably some 60 year old Scoutmaster from Powell with a gray beard. Everything you say is literally the opposite of the truth and screams of "hee, hee, I drive a red Chevy S10".

Little ZZ, Crafty_Commode never mentioned Candy because he is not really a Commode fan. He is a KNS employee that posts on this site to try and rile folks up to get more hits on the site. When anyone realizes that then it doesn't get under their skin. Much like you are not really a Gator fan, you are just a low life that tries to stir the pot

I think you are absolutely correct. A real Florida fan or bama fan is not going to spend every waking moment on a UT sports site. These are just people desperate for attention.

RIGHT NOW IT SUCKS. THERE ARE BETTER PLACES TO GO. (AND IT AIN'T GOVOLS247) SOME OF THESE TROLLS COULD WELL BE THE 247 CREW TRYING TO GET US TO SWITCH OVER TO THEIR PAID SITE.
