Blue chippers do watch ESPN (http://rivals.yahoo.com/ncaa/football/recruiting/player-Robert-Nkemdiche-113275)!! A losing strategy that was so crucial in attracting the top recruits around the country, and getting the exposure in nationally televised games necessary to reel them into Knoxville is beginning to pay dividends. Blue chippers from Rivals, Scout and ESPN are singing the praises of Tennessee football!!
Read what 4 Star LB Yannick Ngakoue had to say about the Vols!!
One reason Tennessee intrigues Ngakoue so much is that they’re currently playing the role of an underdog.”Really, I just like they’re on the rebuilding process and the program’s trying to get back on top. That’s what I like about it. They’re the underdog,” Ngakoue said.
Football Recruiting – Yannick Ngakoue – Player Profiles – ESPN
Recruits recognize that playing time will come early and often at Tennessee….and that ESPN exposure will be maximized as the network shows Tennessee playing top tier teams on highlights.
Like last year, Arkansas quickly jumps to mind as a team that allowed Tennessee to make the top 10 plays of the day. Anybody could’ve beat Arkansas, but the Derek Dooley took the opportunity to solidify his standing with recruits nationwide. ESPN played the game highlights over and over again. Where else could a team get more pub than from ESPN? Even during the NFL draft, Tennessee was a featured team shown in the highlights of several of the top 10 picks, as analysts discussed those draft picks attributes.
I applaud Derek Dooley for ensuring that nobody in the country got more camera time on any given saturday than the Tennessee. He is a revolutionary in the business of college football. He’s the best young coach in America!!!
