The Dexter Moody Watch continues at Tennessee.
The 6-foot-2, 210-pound linebacker from Emanuel County Institute in south Georgia has sent out all the right signals – which basically means (a) saying, “I’m going to [sign] as soon as they offer,” (b) making sure to get that quote in the Knoxville News-Sentinel just in case the Tennessee staff happened to be reading the local paper, and (c) showing up in Knoxville, not only for the Orange and White game, but also to get a little face time with the administration just in case (a) and (b) didn’t make it obvious.
But Moody seems to be on the backburner while Vol fans buzz about B.J. Coleman’s decision to leave the school because he didn’t feel he was getting a “fair shake” in the quarterback competition.
Still, this seems to be a matter of when rather than if. We’ll stay tuned.
