It's not considered one of the more valuable positions, so kickers and punters almost never get more than 3*.

Believe it or not, OL aren't rated as highly either; most will be 3*, with some 4* and very, very few 5* every year... especially at guard.

Dang @@GatorUnvrsty. How many 5 stars yall got? I don't even count them unless they are 5 star on 247 though.

kickers. Sometimes you'll get one with linebacker size and they actually come in handy on big returns. I think that often puts them over the top. I wish NS would take one every year. Our game has been plagued by poor kicking teams play since he has been here. If we'd had solid special teams play we would have probably won more than half of the games that we have lost under NS.

Let's see, UT's average player ranking is...

5_4630.gif Tennessee 20 1 5 12 87.62

In the SEC, that only puts them behind Bama (93.92), TAMU (90.71), AU (90.04), UF (89.79), UGA (89.76), LSU (89.64), USC (88.46), UAr (88.45), and OM (87.69)... not bad.

Yep having a 2* punter (#1 in the nation) and a 2* Long Snapper didn't effect the average star rating at all did it.

UF has 0 (zero) 5* and only 4 4* commits in there non top 20 class per 247.

Both of UTs 5*s are per 247.

Cherry and McKenzie start day one. If we hold on to Williams, it'll be hard to keep him off the field too. Our DL in 2016 will be filthy

WDE:Vereen/Henderson

3: McKenzie/Mix

1: Sawyers/Tuttle(?)

SDE:Hendrix/Barnett

Hell, our entire defense will finally be SEC quality by 2016. 2015 even.

It is damn near impossible to try to project a kickers potential. 90 percent of a kickers game is mental. So the services will not waste their time.

This again? Dude, it's July; NSD is in February. 7 months for players to change their minds several times over. Are you still not aware that teams have a different number of committed players, and that accounts for the difference... by NSD most teams will have similar numbers and the current rankings won't look the same.

And players will decommit and go elsewhere, and their grades will go up and down throughout their senior seasons.

UF only has 10 players, UT has twice as many and their class is almost full with dozens of the top players yet to take visits and commit.

At this point, when teams have a huge disparity in the numbers of players committed, the only way to grade classes accurately is by player average grade; and I just told you what yours was... 10th in the SEC.

If you're not satisfied with that grade, use Scout; they have UT 9th in the SEC. http://florida.scout.com/a.z?s=168&p=9&c=14&view=2&yr=2015

Alabama 19 SEC 3.95

Texas A&M 18 SEC 3.78

Auburn 17 SEC 3.71

LSU 13 SEC 3.54

Georgia 13 SEC 3.54

Arkansas 10 SEC 3.40

Florida 10 SEC 3.40

Missouri 9 SEC 3.33

Tennessee 20 SEC 3.25

South Carolina 21 SEC 3.24

Mississippi 9 SEC 3.22

Kentucky 12 SEC 3.17

Vanderbilt 8 SEC 3.13

Mississippi State 18 SEC 3.11

Or Rivals, who has you tied for 10th with us... only difference is y'all are about done, and we are far from finished, with have our annual camp where we load up on top players coming up next weekend. https://rivals.yahoo.com/florida/football/recruiting/teamrank/2015/SEC/all

Alabama 19 3.89

Auburn 17 3.71

Georgia 13 3.54

Texas A&M 18 3.44

South Carolina 21 3.43

Arkansas 10 3.4

LSU 13 3.38

Kentucky 12 3.33

Florida 10 3.3

Tennessee 20 3.3

Missouri 9 3.22

Mississippi 9 3.11

Mississippi State 18 3.06

Vanderbilt 8 3.0

Any way you slice it, you have the SEC's 9th or 10th best players with little chance to move up.

This is a UT board

There are separate boards for trolling or talking about how neat UF is

Nobody's trolling; just stating the facts. UF's class hasn't shaped up yet, so it's anything but "neat"... 'course, few teams' classes have; that might be 1 reason nobody else is beating their chest, we're only in the 3rd inning of the 2015 recruiting game.

Dude, I came here to remind smokey, again, how recruiting works.

How can you have a parade when NSD is still 7 months away and you have no idea who or how many of your current commits will still be there?

I like the way our class looks right now too; but I've been following recruiting pretty religiously since before there was an internet and all recruiting news was in magazines... so I'm not stupid or naive enough to start getting Recruiting National Champs T-shirts made in July.

Who the hell invited you?

Can we be excited about our recruiting class ON OUR BOARDS without your smart-assed comments about where we rank in the SEC?

This a Vol board, go run along and figure out how to pull that Seminole spear out of your ass

Invitations required for participation now? News to me.

My first comment wasn't meant to be smartass; I didn't realize until halfway through it that UT was going to end up so far down because 24/7 doesn't allow you to just click on the "average" header and get the order; you have to actually put them in order yourself in the post.

But the comment about not bad was genuine, in response to the 2 5* kids. But, by all means, continue your parade; didn't mean to piss in the punch.

^ I know trolling when I see it

Apparently not. But I definitely made my point after the next response; although I still wasn't trolling... hell, I didn't even notice that the topic was in the Vol forum until you just pointed it out.
