Scouts: Will North ignite big finish for UT?

By Tom Luginbill

Tennessee gained some much need momentum Wednesday night with the addition of ESPN 150 wide receiver Marquez North (Charlotte, N.C./Mallard Creek).

I have been saying for a couple of weeks that Tennessee could be lurking around at the end with the opportunity for a strong finish. North could not come at a better time when you consider Tennessee's early departures to the NFL on offense. North is a mammoth prospect who actually has gotten up to the 230 pound range. He is an imposing figure who can run and fits the mold of what some of Tennessee's great receivers of the past have looked like. Butch Jones and his staff certainly hope this lights a fuse to Feb. 6th for more to come and that strong finish to be realized.
