"You know how they say ‘when you visit the right school, you will just know it?’ That’s how it was at Tennessee," Croom told the AJC. "They think I can develop into a special player for them. They really care about my academics and helping me get a degree. I really like the coaches, the players, the atmosphere — you know, everything about the place."
Well, great. As expected, Jason Croom, a wide receiver out of Norcross, Ga., picked Tennessee over Mississippi State.
The Bulldogs are still searching for a big target, so perhaps the coaching staff is about to turn up the heat on Pearl (High), Miss., receiver D.J. Thompson. Last season, Thompson, who checks in at 6-4 and 195-pounds, had 45 catches for 809 yards and 12 touchdowns for the Pirates. Southern Miss currently leads in the recruitment of Thompson.
