With the agitated desperation surrounding the lack of recruiting commitment numbers at Tennessee, many Vol fans may begin singing a different tune after Monday.
In the span of just a few minutes, Coach Dooley secured the top receiver in the state (Jackson, TN - Drae Bowles) and pulled off a big time steal from the Peach State (Dunwoody, GA - Justin King).
The big day for the Vols came as a suprise for some. While King may not be such a big shock to many that follow recruiting, Drae Bowles had his mind set elsewhere just a few weeks ago. According to another in-state player, Bowles was going to commit to Vanderbilt, but apparently those plans changed in the Vols favor.
After having just two commits heading into Monday, the Volunteers doubled that total in only ten minutes. Listed as an athlete, Justin King was told he will be playing outside linebacker for Tennessee. The 6'3", 215-pound King could possibly be a huge steal by the time he hits Rocky Top.
Bowles will be a great fit in the Jim Chaney sytem. Listed at 6'1" 205-pounds, Bowles already has shown that he can be both physical and fast. He is best suited for the slot position which is currently held by two true freshmen and junior. Bowles is a top pickup for the Dooley staff.
The two commitments bring new life to the hopes of many Vols fan who were worried about Coach Dooley "not getting the job done" on the recruiting front. However, the past two classes started off slow and finished strong.
