Marcus Lattimore, a high school running back, told The Times several hostesses came to a game in South Carolina and brought signs including one that read, "Come to Tennessee."

Lattimore told the newspaper the hostesses influence carried weight: "You don't want to go to a college where they ain't pretty," he said.

This guy is unbelievable. This is a post I saw on a different board that explains it well, I think:

"This goes towards institutional control. The hostesses are an official UT group; thus, they should know the rules regarding recruiting. Someone organized and controlled the offsite activities, the hostesses did not do this by themselves.

This could be a very BIG deal. The NCAA could rule that any recruit visited by such representatives could not sign a letter of intent with UT, plus additional sanctions regarding lack of institutional control"

ps - I like how Lane is denying knowing anything about this situation and that no wrongdoing is coming about. I call a big BS on that one. This guy will do literally ANYTHING to win and this type of practice in recruiting is disgusting to me

It's the "services" that these women are most likely providing in order to win over recruits that disgusts me. Funny though...I can see how my comment could be taken that way, lol.

Man, if Miami wanted to use its girls to get recruits, it would be game over. Those Tennessee girls are dogs compared to Miami girls.

Miami does...all schools do...Tenn screwed up by sending them off
campus.

Yeah...on campus is just fine.

It's true though that my Gators would be in trouble. Both Miami and FSU would win the Florida recruiting wars again!

Come to Tennessee! You'll get laid!

UF used to have "hostesses" like these a long time ago, but don't anymore.
