Tennessee steals Alabama commit from Bama & Auburn

Tennessee ended the 2014 season on a high note and look to have carried that momentum into the recruiting wars of the SEC following the commitment of TaDarryl Marshall.

Of particular interest with this commitment is the fact that Marshall is from Leeds, Alabama. Which is nearly smack dab in the middle between Auburn and Tuscaloosa. 

Butch Jones continues to show he is one of the hottest coaches in the nation on the recruiting trail and has Tennessee on the up-and-up as they march their way back to the upper echelon of the SEC East. 

Did anyone expect the Tennessee brand to reach into their rivals’ backyard this soon under Butch?
