*Rico McCoy, the superstar linebacker from Washington, D.C., clocks a 4.55. By linebacker standards, that's almost unheard-of.
*Eugene Hayes, Scout.com's No. 2 ranked linebacker from Madison, Fla., checks in with a 4.6 -- another mind-boggling clocking for a 'backer.
*Raymond Henderson, the pass-rushing defensive end from Oak Creek, Wisc., has run a 4.65 at 255 pounds. That's borderline obscene.
The commitments of Myers-White, McCoy, Hayes and Henderson underscore that Vol recruiters' No. 1 priority this signing season was not so much upgradin g a specific position but upgrading the team's overall speed.
Check out these earlier commitments:
Winston-Salem safety Antonio Wardlow reportedly runs a 4.4.
*Receiver Josh Briscoe of Lawndale, N.C., clocks a 4.5.
Linebacker Todd Cox of Memphis runs a reported 4.6, which is awfully quic k for that position. * Big Jeff Cottam, 6-8 and 260 pounds, reportedly clocks a 4.75. For a guy his size, that's picking 'em up and laying 'em down.
Bottom line: If there's any truth to the old saying ''Speed kills,'' Tennessee's going to murder a lot of opponents the next four years.
