God and Lane Kiffin Bring Nation's Top Recruit To Tennessee

New, comments

The Nation's top high school player, Bryce Brown, has finally made his decision. The Wichita running back turned down Miami for Tennessee. Brown came to the decision after a surprise visit to Tennessee, which included another surprise.

“It was a spiritual decision that I made, and God basically put it on my heart,” Brown said.

On his most recent trip to Tennessee Brown said he asked God to give him a sign as to whether he should choose the Volunteers. At first, he said he did not have a good feeling about the university, but before he left, he received a sign that it was the place for him.

“That right then and there told me that I would be a Volunteer,” Brown said. “I just felt it. I asked for it. He revealed it.”

As someone who prays for the Gators (even Dan Werner), I'm in no position to go after a man's faith. But what "sign" from God could Brown have seen? I'll make some suggestions, you drop a few in the comments.

- A bag of cash appears at Brown's hotel room with a Thank You note addressed to Brown's "player agent" Bryan Butler.

- While driving between the Knoxville airport and UT campus, Lane Kiffin points out to Brown a man in a Miami hat pumping gas.

- When assistant coach Ed Orgeron rips his shirt off, Brown sees an image of Jesus in Orgeron's chest hair.
