For one recent Tennessee commitment last Friday was a whirlwind day, but that's OK - the speedy athlete wouldn't have it any different.

Ellenwood, Georgia<'s Vincent Dallas, a speedy wideout that loves making big plays had a Friday to remember.

Dallas made the announcement at his high school pep rally, where his family, friends and teammates were at his side.

"It was very busy Friday, but I love how everything turned out," Dallas told InsideTennessee.com. "It was great to get this decision made and the stress off my shoulders."

After his decision and pep rally his team went on to beat a ranked team Friday night, so things couldn't get much better.

"We are now up for the Fox Five Game of the week, tell all my fans to vote for my team," Dallas said. "We need everyone's support. It was great to get the win. It was a complete team effort."

Dallas did his part with an 80-yard touchdown run on a kickoff return.

Why did Dallas choose the University of Tennessee over 30 other schools, including the University of Florida?

"I felt more comfortable at Tennessee than at any other school," Dallas said. "I just took my official visit to Florida the week before and realized that UT was the best place for me. It just feels like home, the coaching staff is more down to earth and seems to care about me a lot more than the other coaching staffs did."

According to Dallas, he had an offer from every school in the ACC and the SEC.

"Tennessee is a great up-and-coming program," Dallas said. "Coach (Derek) Dooley is a great man who has a great love and passion for the University of Tennessee. He is building something special, something I wanted to be a part of."

Dallas is anxious to get started at Tennessee. He confirmed Sunday that he will graduate in December and enroll at Rocky Top in January.

The 6-foot, 180-pound athlete has been clocked in the 40-yard dash at 4.35. He was recruited by the Vols to play wideout.
