By Saturday Down South, 1 month 12 hours ago
Late Monday, three-star QB Quinten Dormady committed to Tennessee after being offered about two weeks ago. With QB recruiting resembling a grueling game of chess, one has to wonder if this is some sort of message about how the Vols perceive their situation with five-star QB/ATH Torrance Gibson, who told Saturday Down South a week ago that Auburn was now his slight leader over Tennessee after he...
