When his late-July commitment hit the tickers and message boards, some star-gazing faithful of the Big Orange were overly critical.

Since that time all Tennessee commitment Cody Blanc has done is attend as many games as possible at Neyland Stadium, attempted to lead his high school team during his senior season and carried a consistent smile.

Coaching staffs at Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Virginia Tech all believed in Blanc enough to offer the Knoxville Central High School product a scholarship.

At 6-feet-1, 191 pounds and with a clocked camp time of 4.41 seconds in the 40-yard dash, Blanc gives the Volunteers a solid blend of size and speed in the secondary with a frame that could easily allow another 15-20 pounds.
