One thing is always certain in recruiting; it's not over until the Fax Lady sings.

With National Signing day a little more than two and a half months away, things should get interesting on Rocky Top before everything is said and done.

With Lane Kiffin and Ed Orgeron leading the way in recruiting, always expect the unexpected come signing day.

Earlier, longtime junior college commitment Bruce Irvin decommitted from the Vols and announced to Arizona State.

Is Irvin's recruitment over?

Apparently not by a long shot.

"I talk to Coach Orgeron at least once a week," Irvin told InsideTennessee.com on Wednesday night. "Every time I talk to Coach O, the entire staff gets on the phone and tells me how much they want me and need me on their team. Coach O and Coach Kiffin won't take no for an answer."

Does this mean Irvin is open to what the Volunteer coaches are telling him?

"I'm still committed to Arizona State for now, we will have to wait and see," Irvin said. "I will definitely take an official visit to Tennessee. I have already told them I would definitely take one."

Irvin, a five-star prospect by Scout.com, has had a great season so far, leading his team to the No. 1 national ranking and an 8-1 overall record. He has 47 tackles, 11 sacks, 15 tackles for losses and four caused fumbles.

"Tennessee isn't backing off at all, in fact they are on me more now than they were before," Irvin said. "One thing about Tennessee, they are an up-and-coming program and they are a lot closer to my home in Florida."

Irvin said that he plans to make his official visit plans to Rocky Top as soon as his junior college season is complete.
