If You See Some New Faces On Campus This Weekend...Be Nice

New, 9 comments

Dalton's Rules are in effect this weekend, guys:

"What if a four-star recruit calls my momma a whore?"

"Is she?"

Seriously, we can't screw this weekend up.  Lots of bright and shiny faces possibly interesting in spending the next four years in our keep.  Including one very special individual:

Oklahoma high school running back David Oku will visit Syracuse this weekend even though he's officially committed to Tennessee, Donnie Webb reports in the Syracuse Post-Standard.

Oku is rated as the No. 13 running back in the country by ESPN.com's Scouts Inc. Another recruiting service has him ranked as the top all-purpose back in the nation.

When Oku gave his verbal commitment to the Volunteers, Stan Drayton was the Tennessee running backs coach. Now Drayton holds that title under Doug Marrone at Syracuse.

And those of you who have been questioning all of the Tennessee hires may now cease to do so.

Donnie has the full list of visitors this weekend.  It includes some who are already verbal commitments (which means nothing) like Alec Lemon and Torian Phillips.  It also includes one ridiculously good-looking quarterback (do I need to "no homo" this at this point?  Just in case...no homo.).  Interestingly, almost all of the visitors are from outside the Tri-State Area, a nice sign that Marrone's staff is looking far and wide for the best available players and not just playing in their own sandbox.
