Rogers, Nance have good visit to UT

A weekend visit to the University of Tennessee was enough to give Calhoun High School quarterback Nash Nance and teammate Da’Rick Rogers something to think over. Both players have been committed to other Southeastern Conference programs since last summer, Nance to Vanderbilt and Rogers, who is rated the nation’s No. 9 overall prospect, to Georgia.

Both players were accompanied by their parents and the families returned home Sunday still committed to those schools. However their visit, which included meetings with new Vols’ coach Derek Dooley, went well enough that each are now weighing their options.

“The boys haven’t had any time to reflect on their visit this weekend,” Nance’s father Mike said via text message. “Right now we don’t want to comment except to say that it was a good visit. They will make a statement later this week.”

They were somewhat quiet it appears on giving any answers or commenting on how they feel. I am sure they got straight talk from CDD and make it really difficult for them to turn it down. He has signed two this weekend and here is the third. Glen Stanley 4* from Eastern Arizona College- 6.2', 245 pounds, 4.42 fourty. I have seen his film this guy reminds me of Dwight Freeney-can line up at DE and has a lightning fast jump on OT, line up any position at linebacker, and he creates alot of havoc in the back field plus has ball hawking instints for blitzing the quarterback.

Class shapping up better than I would have dreamed. Just got to get those Defensive coaches lined up.
