Bryce Brown picks Tennessee

Posted by ESPN.com's Heather Dinich

It's finally over. As most Miami fans probably have already heard, former recruit Bryce Brown has chosen Tennessee.

Arguably the two best recruiting moves by ACC coaches this winter resulted in not getting the player, and both Randy Shannon and Paul Johnson will be better off for it.

Miami grew weary of Brown's drama, and Johnson refused to sit by and let quarterback recruit Dontae Aycock visit Auburn when he specifically asked him not to after already committing to Georgia Tech.

Ability and talent are great, unless they outweigh character and commitment. And in these cases, at least, two coaches determined that trade-off wasn't worth it.
