UT National Signing Day - Post 8

Disaster comes to Phil Fulmer at this hour. I am still trying to confirm this, but word is coming out of Louisiana that Perry Riley and Kelvin Sheppard have signed with LSU. Three sources are confirming Michael Goggans to Auburn. Aleric Mullins has reportedly faxed in his papers, but apparently they were not to The University of Tennessee.

For those of you keeping count, that's three strikes against Phil Fulmer and Co. of the 5 items that I wrote this morning had to happen for UT to have a successful class and move into the Top 20 in the nation. As of right now, UT is about to fall out of the Top 25. Barring a miracle, UT will not even sign a full class and will finish at 7th or 8th in the SEC this year. This will be the lowest class in Fulmer's 13 years as Head Coach at UT. While I know that recruiting wins don't mean anything, one can't win in the Fall without excellent recruiting. So, yes, this is troubling.

On the national front, Florida State is raiding Florida's top-rated class. I should say, Florida's formerly top-rated class. USC is raiding everyone's class and showing increased recruiting moxy right now. There is a report that they may have stolen Keiland Williams out of Hargrave Military (one of Darius Myers' teammates), who had verbally committed to LSU. Williams is a special runner. I may take some heat for saying this, but I would not be surprised if Williams is the starter next year at USC (if he does indeed go there). A few steals like that and USC will have another top-rated class. Amazing...

More to come...
