The Tennessee Volunteers bring in some of the nation's best recruits each and every year. Sure, some don't turn out, but that doesn't take away from the excitement coaches and fans felt when the player signed the dotted line.

Who are the Vols' biggest recruits in school history?

No matter what, the hype will be far too much for some of these "can't miss" players. I assure you, some will miss. At the same time, some will come completely out of nowhere to become huge contributors and key cogs in a championship wheel.

Recruiting didn't become the industry it is today until 10 years ago, but there are still some Vols before that time that were hotly recruited.

I bet you can name one right now.

Of the players featured in the coming slides, four made it to the NFL, three ended their careers with teams not named Tennessee, two quit football altogether after college and one met an untimely death.

But all eight were hyped recruits at one time.
