Based on Dooley’s lackadaisical recruiting history, I say that that is better than average chance that he will dick up this 4 star in-state recruit, Brentwood’s Jalen Ramsey. Primarily cause this kid has too many stars for Dooley. Dooley likes the diamonds in the rough….at the 3 star level or lower.
It is being reported that Ramsey is visiting Knoxville this Friday. Would love to have Tennessee’s top high school players come to Knoxville to play for the University of Tennessee. I expect Dooley and staff to roll out the red carpet and let Jalen know he’s wanted, “loved”, and need here. Even whip his ass in the MMA fighting cage. But as a realist I know this isn’t likely to make a difference. After all he has 4 stars and is likely to pick up a 5th star soon.
It’s going to really suck to watch this kid go to Vandy or Southern Cal or Alabama. Dooley lost this one from day one. Dadgum shame too. The kid really seems to love Tennessee (the state). So while Dooley is bitching about vacation days James Franklin, Nick Saban and Lane Kiffin are working for their programs. Outworking our boy genius….GBO
The 6-foot, 185-pound Ramsey, from Brentwood (Tenn.) Academy, outperformed a collection of some of the most talented prospects in the country and was named MVP of the Five-Star Challenge 7-on-7 tournament by the team of Rivals.com analysts.
