Kevin Revis, 6-4, 270 pound offensive guard/center from Evensville-Rhea County (Tenn.) said of his commitment to Tennessee, "I am 100% committed. I was committed within fifteen minutes of the offer, so there is no doubt in my mind."
One fear from a lot of fans in Knoxville is how the recruiting class may hold up with a poor season. Revis commented, "Most of the commitments I have talked to are very solid. Tennessee is a few plays away from having a better season." He went on to say, "All their games there have been a few mistakes."
To Revis the commitments have committed to Tennessee for several reasons. He explained, "It's a great place to play; you are not coming here just for the coaches or the record. It's because the university and its history."
One of the biggest recruits that the Volunteers are working hard to land is Memphis-Harding Academy wide receiver Marlon Brown. Revis said of Brown, "I talked to him when he came for the Florida game. I think we have a good shot. He seems like a really good guy and I know he is a really good player."
As for the Volunteers they will not have a bigger help in the recruiting class than Revis. He is a big time fan of program and extremely supportive of the coaching staff. He commented, "I love all the coaches and they are all great coaches. Like I said the coaches is one of the factors, but I am coming to Tennessee because I love Tennessee and that's where I want to be. I really want the coaches that are there right now to be there."
For Revis, the season has been filled with some highs and lows. He said of the season, "We are 5-1 and I did not get to play for a few weeks because of an injury, but now I'm back." Tonight the Eagles from Evensville-Rhea County take on Chattanooga-Red Bank Lions for a big region match up that could decide the region title. He went on to say of his team's chances going into the postseason, "We don't make many mistakes, we are going to play hard, and we get along well I think we can make a run."
