Perhaps it was just all in fun or a hint of things to come. Either way, a cryptic tweet from Derrick Brown had Tennessee fans abuzz late Sunday evening.

That song lyric may be the closest thing that recruiting fans get when it comes to any indication where Brown is headed until he signs on Wednesday. The 6-foot-4, 320-pound defensive tackle has said he won’t be doing anymore interviews until National Signing Day. The five-star prospect is primarily considering Alabama, Auburn, Georgia and Tennessee. However, most believe the Vols and Tigers, who have made a late push, are Brown’s leaders.
Brown is the No. 4 defensive tackle in the nation and the top prospect in Georgia.
