The crown jewel of Lane Kiffin’s 2009 recruiting class at the Univ. of Tennessee, sophomore running back Bryce Brown, has reportedly told Vols Coach Derek Dooley that he is leaving the team.
Knoxville WNML-AM radio host Jimmy Hyams reports that Brown skipped a scheduled meeting today with Dooley that was reportedly to decide his future with the program. Hyams added that Brown later sent Dooley a text saying he won’t return to the Volunteers.
Josh Ward of the KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL reported Tuesday:
Brown’s father was “ballistic” that Bryce wasn’t man enough to tell Dooley to his face that he’s leaving. Brown left town.
John Adams of the KNOXVILLE NEWS-SENTINEL also noted Brown’s awkward departure: Read more…

• Lenny Dykstra - great boss, financial genius, and friend of all races. And if you believe that, there’s a bridge in Brooklyn we’d like to sell you.
• It’s March Madness time! Awkward high-five between old white guys!
• Despite his marvelous on-court skills, Dwyane Wade won’t be schoolin’ anyone in Miami this year.

Bryce Brown has finally chosen a college. The prized running back recruit has decided to run to Rocky Top.
DR. SATURDAY reports that Brown has Volunteered to commit to the University of Tennessee. (Guess all that crazy Kiffin recruiting works, after all!) But Bryce’s announcement didn’t come without a little suspense.
Wichita’s own Bryce Brown, the top-rated high school running back prospect in the country, has not signed with a program officially yet. His advisor/manager, Brian Butler, is doing everything he can to finagle the best deal and that requires multiple suitors.
Therefore, Butler has tossed in every possible destination he can think of, even if it requires a passport. That’s why the CFL has come up as one possible home for Brown next season.
Of course, Butler has negotiated in the press that he’d want $15m for his client (that he is totally not an agent for) over three years from the CFL and that’s more than CFL teams are allowed to spend on their entire on-field labor force.
That seems to lay bare the true possibility of a high schooler jumping north for football. However, do not underestimate how much the CFL may want to shiv the NFL…
