Are the rumors true? Is Union, S.C. offensive lineman Eric Young really a Tennessee commitment?
"Yes, I committed to Tennessee this weekend," said the 6-foot-4, 270-pounder. "I loved the visit like all the others I've taken, but coach Fulmer was the biggest difference. He's a former offensive lineman himself and he understands how important the line is. He made me feel very comfortable and important."
Young had already visited Maryland, Clemson and South Carolina and has a scheduled visit with North Carolina next weekend.
"I can't see myself taking that visit," he said. "I'm committed so I don't see why they'd want me to waste their time."
There is only one scheduled visit left that Young will keep.
"Coach (Lou) Holtz is coming to see me on Monday," he said. "I think I at least owe it to him to tell him I committed to Tennessee in person."
Will he be swayed by Holtz?
"I can't see that happening," he said. "I'm pretty set on Tennessee."
