Fulton 100 percent Vol

When one Tennessee commitment learned that Jim Chaney will be staying at Rocky Top, that was all Zack Fulton needed to hear. Go "Inside" to get the Fulton family's thoughts on the situation this week and why they are happy to be Volunteers still on Sunday.

One Tennessee commitment is relieved some things will stay the same at Rocky Top.

For Illinois offensive lineman Zach Fulton, this has been a tough week, as it has for most Tennessee Volunteer fans.

"It hurt us a lot, when we heard that Lane Kiffin was leaving," Glen Fulton told InsideTennessee.com. "It really wounded us, but wounds heal."

According to Mr. Fulton, they received a phone call Sunday morning that made the Fulton family feel a lot better.

"Coach Jim Chaney just confirmed with us that he is staying at the University of Tennessee and will be running the offense," Fulton said. "We told him if he confirmed on staying we are confirmed on staying with the University of Tennessee also."

Chaney was Fulton's main recruiter and it's that relationship that led Zach to Knoxville in the first place.

"Our commitment is to the University of Tennessee, not Lane Kiffin," Fulton explained. "It's good to know that someone we trust is still going to be there, makes us feel a lot better about the situation."

Fulton is now 100 percent committed to the Vols.
