Most of those folks are long gone from this site. This is some of he best news for everyone I have heard in some time. Young people can sometimes get themselves into situations and just not know how to get themselves out. It is fortunate that Ms. Tucker has such a great support system all the way around. My opinion of CHW only grew the day she tweeted about this - I thought her message was spot on.

Oh yeah, incidentally we are now officially loaded! Go big Orange.

I will love to see her in Orange!!

Welcome JT! Now that you are a Lady Vol, you will be received with open arms. Holly believes in supporting her ladies. We, the VolNation have your back.

Go Lady vols!

Let's hope this young woman can pull it all together after some horrible problems.

And what a great testament to the quality of Coach Warlick and her staff.

My guess (and hope) is that even if she never plays basketball for UT that the school will stand behind her.

No doubt we will be on top of the SEC for years to come and have a couple of shots at the Natl Ship . You will notice its all about making a dreamteam of young ladies and Tenn is starting to look like a dreamteam. I see only three teams that are stacked from top to bottom. Uconn, Tenn , and Duke . These teams if they play to their potential and no injuries will be almost a shoe in for the final four with maybe UNC or Maryland being the fourth. Can't wait lady Vols!

Let's hope Jannah benefits from all the support she should get from Holly, the team, and the school. We fans can play a small role in that as well. I was pretty sure even after Jannah canceled her original commitment that it had nothing to do with her opinion of UT or the Lady Vols. I know we are all glad she is out of that terrible situation, has chosen UT to help in her recovery, and will boost the LV program in many ways in the future.

Just like Butch is building a future team and getting our football team back to dominance Holly and Kyra are doing a excellence job in communicating with players not only about basketball but about life . The new tool in recruiting is social media and young recruits love to see coaches reach out to them. I'm excited to see what the recruiting class looks like next year. Can't wait to travel to TN to watch the lady Vols play MTSU, a tough first test with Ebony Rowe.

THIS IS A WORTHWHILE USE OF A BB SCHOLARSHIP, EVEN IF SHE DOESN'T PLAY A MINUTE. WE ARE NOT USING THREE OR FOUR SCHOLARSHIPS YEARLY AND IT IS FAR BETTER TO GIVE SOME DESERVING YOUNG LADY AN EDUCATION THAN TO JUST ALLOW THOSE SCHOLARSHIPS TO GO UNUSED. WHAT A POSITIVE STATEMENT THIS MAKES ABOUT OUR WOMEN'S COACHING STAFF.
