Like all other college football teams, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga had a busy signing day. The Mocs signed 15 players and celebrated the day with a catered lunch from Wally's.
OL Corey Levin, Dacula (Ga.) High School - Picked the Mocs over Appalachian State and Georgia Southern.
DE Vantrel McMillan, Monroe (Ga.) High School - Voted to the Georgia Class AAA all-state second team.
RB Tolerance Shepherd, Fitzgerald (Ga.) High School - Rushed for more than 1,500 yards and 24 touchdowns
TE Kevin Niethammer, Maryville High School - Mocs think Niethammer has, to steal a line from Mel Kiper Jr., "a lot of upside."
DE Keionta Davis, Red Bank - Missed his senior season with an ACL injury after a big junior year. Was a Times Free Press Dynamite Dozen pick.
OL Robert Hill, Buford (Ga.) High School - Hill made the Gwinnett Touchdown Club's All-Gwinnett second team and was named honorable mention all-area by the Gainesville Times.
