Aside from their football skills, the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga's 2014 recruits also could form a couple of really strong sprint relay teams. The Mocs added more speed to an already impressive collection Monday evening when they flipped Richardre Bagley of Hillgrove High School in Powder Springs, Ga., from his commitment to Furman.

The 5-foot-9, 180-pound Bagley, whose first name is pronounced "Ricar-dre," is the 12th of the Mocs' 19 commitments who also have been track standouts, and on several occasions last year he was timed at 4.38 seconds in the 40-yard dash.

"In my 18 years of coaching he's the best at putting his foot in the ground and being top speed in about two steps," said Hillgrove running backs coach Tarve Riggins, who also coached former four-star Hillgrove star and current Alabama sophomore Kenyan Drake.
