A win for Dooley and the Vols

When former Louisiana Tech head coach Derek Dooley took over at the University of Tennessee for the USC-bound Lane Kiffin, he knew he had a tough job in front of him.

But after watching several top high school recruits decommit and jump ship in the wake of Kiffin’s departure, Dooley and the Volunteer faithful desperately needed something to go their way.

On Sunday, Vols fans finally got some good news.

Eastern Arizona Junior College four-star linebacker Glenn Stanley announced yesterday evening that he was committing to the University of Tennessee, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.

Stanley, a former Trinity Catholic High School (Ocala, FL) standout, was also reportedly considering Kansas, Kansas State and Missouri.

Stanley’s commitment puts the 2010 Tennessee recruiting class and 19 prospects, with just over a week left until National Signing Day (February 3).
