Bryce Brown’s a Volunteer

That’s right people.

After weeks of deliberation, the nation’s No. 1 prospect has signed his name in orange ink.

Bryce Brown is coming to Tennessee.

He’s set to join a depth chart with some high profile backs, including another 2009 signee, David Oku.  But out of everyone, Brown comes in with the highest potential.

Will he contribute immediately?  Probably not.  The Vols have two experienced tailbacks in Lennon Creer and Montario Hardesty.  But expect Brown to get a look this summer to see what he can do.

In the long run, though, the thought of Brown and Oku in the same backfield has me as giddy as a schoolgirl.

Kiffin and Co. have showed the college football world what they’re capable of, and they had less than half the time of the other schools recruiting Brown.  Just think of what they can do with a full year.

Here’s a taste of what Brown can do:

  1. Remember how Chuck Webb loved to turn the corner and most of his moves like he was going inside were false dips to set up going wide? Been watching videos of Brown and he seems to take what’s there. He turns the corner like defensive ends are standing still but turns it up inside when the gap is there. Either way he blows past ends, linebackers and defensive backs like they are standing still. When he went up the gut in the videos he seemed to be untouched at the line so couldn’t see what he did against the big boys inside but once past the line he leaves everyone in his dust.

    • I can definitely see the similarities between Brown and Webb. The kid is going to be a workhorse in college, that’s for sure. He’s got so much speed and power for such a solid build. And like you said, he hits those gaps so quick the defensive ends don’t even have time to react. He’s a great player, and definitely deserving of the No. 1 ranking he received from Rivals.

  2. I also remember the swivel hip Chuck Webb displayed and agree that Bryce shows the same ability.
