As the Knoxville News-Sentinel informed readers on a snowy Saturday, five-star recruit Markeith Ambles — a strong Tennessee commitment before coach Lane Kiffin bailed to USC last month — was finally "ridin up to k-town" with a pair of UT assistants for an official visit that could decide the hyped receiver’s final destination. When quoting his Twitter page, however, the paper mysteriously chose not to elaborate upon what young Markeith had planned for former Vol volleyball player turned Knoxville sports radio personality Heather Harrington when he got to town:
Oh, reckless social networking. What would recruiting be without you?
As any UT frat boy with Heather’s smoking hot "Sports Animal" poster tacked up in his dorm room can confirm, Ambles has good taste. Alas, at 25, Heather has outgrown recruits. (Although she’s not above an unfortunate double entendre or two.)
Tennessee picked up three commitments out of the weekend despite the snow; not surprisingly, Ambles wasn’t one of them. Presumably, he’s delaying his announcement for some signing day shenanigans on Wednesday. If hastily installed coach Derek Dooley hasn’t made the acquaintance of the Vol hostesses yet, this might be a good time.
