You already know this

Uber-recruit Bryce Brown is a Tennessee Volunteer.

It seems only fitting that two of the most controversial and talked-about figures this offseason, Brown and Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin, will end up together in Knoxville.

Regardless of your opinions about either one, this is a pretty big score for Kiffin, and the main reason I think that he ultimately will be successful -- he's surrounded himself with excellent assistants who are even better recruiters, as evidenced by pulling in both Brown and top-ranked all-purpose back David Oku (although Florida fans believe it has less to do with recruiting prowess and more to do with LOL TENNE$$EE cheaterz!!!).

But if he's going to build his offense around these guys, Kiffin better hope that Brown and Oku are more decisive on the field than off it. In case you're not familiar with Oku:
The prep running back who delayed his decision past national signing day, and then moved from an Oklahoma high school to a Nebraska high school, and who visited Auburn three times, stuck with the school he originally committed to a long time ago.
Brown and Oku might both be upstanding young men, but what are the odds one of these guys transfers by his junior year? 99 percent?
