I don't think so. I think the Tennessee Tech game was just because we otherwise would have had to play Saint Xavier. We were able to work out a date with TTU so we'd have a full DI schedule. I think it was just a bonus that we happen to be recruiting quite a bit in the Tennessee/Georgia area and had some families that were probably able to show up for that game.WIU2DC wrote: ↑Fri Jul 27, 2018 1:45 pmDid we play Tennessee Tech, in some parts because he grew up right around there? Or was that a different freshman? Also, where did he transfer to?GV Dad wrote:J'Len transferred. Wanted to be closer to home from my understanding.

Also, I think the guy you're thinking of is RB Victavious Johnson from Cookeville, TN: https://goleathernecks.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=16988
Played in 3 games last year, including getting a TD against TTU. Putting him in for that might have been because he's from around there and it would be nice to have him get a TD in front of his friends and family, but I don't think we'd schedule a football game solely because of where a new freshman player is from.
