UT's Final Six spots in 2011 Class

Who will be the final six commitments for the Vols? More importantly who will be the final six signees on February 2? At InsideTennessee.com we decided to do a daily countdown, giving our picks of the final six. Go "Inside" to get our thoughts on the developing situation.

National Signing Day is less than two weeks away.

Tennessee currently has 21 commitments and the Vols are expected to sign 27 prospects on February 2, 2011.

Who will be the final six?

We are InsideTennessee.com decided to give you a countdown of our picks to fill those final six spots.

Safety is a key position for the Vols, one player that could add experience and be a big play threat early is former USC defender Byron Moore.

Moore has his choices down to Tennessee and Miami. Some think that the Hurricanes might be the team to beat since a former coach is now at South Beach.

How big would Moore's signature for the Vols?

Very big, he would automatically compete with Brent Brewer for playing time and it would allow Prentiss Waggoner to stay at the corner spot. Brewer was a pleasant surprise this past season, but is still learning football after playing pro baseball.

Moore is a solid defender, known for being physical and possesses good cover skills .

The former four star All-American red shirted at USC and played this past year at a junior college. He will have three years to play three. Having him for three years would be a major advantage.

Moore, a 6-foot-1, 205 athlete has good speed and has been timed consistency at 4.5 in the forty.

Chances of Signing Moore: 60 percent

The Inside Call: I realize its going to be a tough battle between Miami and Tennessee. In the end I feel he will be a Vol.

Deciding Factor: Getting the opportunity to play and make an impact quicker at Rocky Top. Another factor is that Tennessee has one year already under Derek Dooley and is heading in the right direction. Al Golden is in his first year of the rebuilding process at Miami.

The Back up plan: If Moore opts to go to Miami, look for the Vols to sign Geraldo Orta.
