One of the oldest rules about college football recruiting is that nothing is guaranteed until that letter of intent comes through on the fax machine. It's a rule Arizona State can attest to this year.
After committing to the Sun Devils nearly eight months ago, four-star quarterback Joshua Dobbs surprised a lot of people on Wednesday morning when he signed with Butch Jones and Tennessee.
The 6-foot-3, 190-pound Dobbs is the No. 8 pro-style quarterback in the 2013 class, according to 247Sports.com. Although he's listed as a pro-style quarterback, Dobbs can still move, as he's been clocked at 4.7 seconds in the 40-yard dash. He's also good in the classroom, another nice quality to have in a quarterback, as he also had offers from Harvard, Princeton and Yale.
Dobbs is one of two quarterbacks to sign with Tennessee on Wednesday, joining three-star Riley Ferguson.
