..to UTjr. Doesn't sound good here:
Changing my prediction on Vonn Bell from Buckeyes to Vols after talking to many, perhaps slower than some would like but due diligence
That is in the Withers/Bell thread below, maybe someone can join these two threads.
JC tweeted things are trending up with Bell to OSU, he said Urban closes well. I don't think anyone knows what the fuck is going on with bell.
All these "predictions" for Vonn Bell are changing daily! All these so called "experts" are all taking a shot in the dark then justifying it by saying they've talked to someone "close to the situation" It's all getting quite irritating and monotonous. NSD can't come soon enough for this growing Saga to finally reach it's conclusion.
Would I like Vonn Bell in this Class? Of course and I hope he chooses the Buckeyes, but if he chooses UT so be it, the daily drama surrounding his Recruitment is getting tiring.

I really hope Farrell is wrong on Bell, but things are definitely not sounding great for OSU right now. Many UT fans probably cant handle this fact, but they have been relevant in the college football world for awhile and i don't see that changing with Butch Jones running the show! I wish Bell the best whatever school he picks, but if he honestly care's about conference titles and the chance to play for National titles then UT isn't the place for him. If Bell chooses UT then it's ALL about staying close to home, which in my mind is a good enough reason to choose a school....i guess..
Who's Zead..Zeads dead baby.
Staying home plays a lot more into it that most people think. Do you think Diggs at Maryland or Bell at Tenn or even Quick at Louisville will be winning at BCS titles? Only UL will be winning conference titles. Staying close to home for family to see you play is a big, big reason they do and that's fine. These guys are stil kids and most haven't been away from home like most would be going to another college.
You can't fault them for that and it's hard to compete with.
Yea i completely agree with you that staying home or even really close to home is the biggest reason these kids decide on what school to play ball at! I don't fault these kids choosing a school for that purpose and if i were to be in their position i would do the same thing.
