08:21 AM ET 11.15 | Freshman Justin Hunter started with Tennessee just hoping not to be yelled at by his coach, and he's already to the point where five of his 14 receptions have been for touchdowns. His reputation continues to grow. Senior teammate Gerald Jones likened Hunter's speed to that of thoroughbred Zenyatta and suggested that he could go down as one of UT's all-time great wideouts. "The sky's the limit," Jones said. "He can be as good as the Heisman Trophy. ... He's got speed, talent, great ball skills." He also is remarkably humble for a player who was ranked among the 10 best wide receiver prospects in the nation in last year's recruiting class.

After placing in the last race, Zenyatta is not a good comparison.

Bray deserves some kudos in these threads too!

He has made some crazy catches lately, now that he has a qb that can actually get him the ball. I think Bray to Hunter for a TD is a sentence I'll be hearing a lot in the next few years.

I dont know if I would want to be mentioned w/ the Heismann... Peep will start to think he got paid big $$$$ when he switched from LUS to UTk....

I think they're rubbing his recruitment in your face showing him making a catch over a LUS player. Oh well, LUS got the last laugh this year, scoring on our 13 man defense.

Bray has to be given some of that credit-he looks to be the real deal. Hunter, Rogers and company will be a handful in the very near future. The Vols are on the rise.

Good luck with that on a team that is mediocre the next few years.

I know...And against our highly recruited FRSH.. lol..I heard the NCAA will allow 13 man Defenses next year..

As long as UF gets 15 on Offense. Even then Addazio will have issues getting a first down.

I'd like to thank UTk for giving me a bright spot on an otherwise dismal Saturday. I think it was karma though. I laughed way too much at Ole Lady on Saturday morning and early afternoon, only to get laughed at by the worst tackling performance by the MSU defense in the last 2 years and the offensive line having a horrendous day.

You mean hoste$$$$$$...I am not bitter bro... LUS will be better than UTk for at least the next 5 years

5 years may be stretching it a bit. UT is not that far away. Mediocre hardly describes where the program is headed. We have a lot of true freshmen playing extensive minutes. It can only make us better quicker after the initial thumpings we will take. It should be fun to watch. In the meantime I can still root for my Commodores to whip **** on the diamond this year. They are looking strong!
