Top Talent of Tennessee: # 16 - 12

The countdown grows closer and closer to number one. The Top Talent of Tennessee list begins to show the state's top committed players as the countdown continues with numbers 16 – 12.

# 16 – Thad McHaney, 6-4, 200 pound tight end from Brentwood Academy (Tenn.) has a growing list of offers. He has very explosive feet and is very athletic in space. McHaney may project to play outside linebacker for a few of the schools that have already offered. He hopes to have his decision near midseason, but will have a tough time as he already has nine offers from schools like Auburn, Kentucky, Marshall, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vanderbilt, and Louisville.

# 15 – DeMarcus Knight, 6-2, 230 pound linebacker from Morristown-East (Tenn.) made an early commitment to Ole Miss. Knight is a solid linebacker who is able to cover the pass and stop the run. He said of his early commitment, "I'm pretty solid with Ole Miss. I liked the coaches and they would be expecting me to play my freshman year." Knight is still receiving a lot of attention from schools like Tennessee, Virginia Tech, Middle Tennessee, Kentucky, and Louisville.

# 14 – Dominque Allen, 6-0, 250 pound defensive end from Paris-Henry County (Tenn.) made his commitment early in the process and found his dream school. Allen commented, "I knew before Tennessee offered me I was going to commit. They were the school I was waiting on. I went to see other schools but they were nothing compared to Tennessee. I was born and raised a Tennessee fan. I really like the team." Allen is quick off the edge and strong against the run outside allowing him to be one of the best defensive linemen in the state.

# 13 – Kevin Revis, 6-4, 270 pound offensive guard/center from Evensville-Rhea County (Tenn.) has already found his dream school. It didn't take long for Revis to make his commitment after he was offered by his dream school Tennessee. He is a solid center/guard prospect with great feet, good hand placement, solid drive block technique, and very aggressive streak that allows him to accelerate to second and third level players. Not only is Revis a solid commitment to Tennessee he is turning into a solid recruiter as networks the list of uncommitted Volunteer prospects.

# 12 – Greg King, 6-3, 205 pound linebacker from Memphis-Melrose (Tenn.) is picking up a lot of interest this recruiting season. King finished the 2007 season with 70 tackles, 10 sacks and four forced fumbles. He shows great closing speed, power, dip and rip technique to avoid blockers, and tackling technique. King will have a hard time choosing as he boasts offers from Tennessee, North Carolina, Ole Miss, Arkansas, and Alabama to name a few.
