Of course, if Tyler Bray is to live up to my lofty 2012 predictions, he'll be helping the wide receiving corp rack up a ton of stats, too. It's a good thing that the Tennessee Volunteers are once again Wide Receiver U.
Back in the days of Peerless Price, Marcus Nash and Cedrick Wilson, Tennessee fans were used to seeing consistent passing attacks, capable of carving up any college secondary.
That stream slowed a bit with an intermittent blip like Donte Stallworth or Robert Meachem on the radar screen, but it's back now. Derek Dooley is a polished recruiter of his former playing position.
Incoming 4-star freshman DeAnthony Arnett joins an already formidable wide receiving group that includes 5-star Da-Rick Rogers and Justin Hunter, future SEC receiving yards champion in my opinion.
Matt Milton could easily join that tandem in 2011.
Jason Croom, 2012 wide receiver recruit is close to picking Tennessee as his new home, just in time to contribute to an SEC title run. That foursome will be the best in the SEC if not the country.
Rogers and Hunter will lead this corp in 2012. Rogers is the stronger, more blue-collar receiver while Hunter can stretch the field ala Randy Moss. Watch for two 1,000 receivers.
If these two are as good as I think they will be, 2012 will be the finale of their careers.
