RTN's Recruiting Wrap-up 2005

Tennessee's Class of 2005 is rated the nation's best. The annual Rocky Top News recruiting issue chronicles this hallmark achievement with an inside look at the prospects and events that brought it together. Here are just samples of the stories and analysis included in this year's issue:

ANALYZING UT'S CLASS: A lot of factors helped Tennessee land the top-ranked recruiting class in college football. Head coach Phillip Fulmer discusses these and much, much more in an insightful analysis piece.

HOW VOLS MET NEEDS: Tennessee's unofficial recruiting motto was ''Safety First,'' and the Vols accomplished their mission by signing a half-dozen quality defensive backs. So, how did they meet their other needs? Here's a position-by-position breakdown.

RECALLING THE CLASS OF '01: Four years ago, Tennessee signed a ballyhooed recruiting class that featured three of the country's top 10 prep tailbacks. Now that the dust has settled, we take a long, hard look at the studs and duds that came out of that class.

• Bios and an assortment of info on all 27 members of UT's No. 1 signing class.

• A look at how Jonathan Crompton went from prized prospect to accomplished recruiter.

• A feature on the U.S. Army All-American Bowl which is rapidly becoming a national football classic.

• How the teams of the SEC stack up in this year's recruiting wars.

• National rankings of the top 25 schools.

• Ranking of the top 100 prospects in the Class of 2005.

• In-depth features on Chris Scott, Slick Shelley and Ulysses Alexander
