ROEBUCK, S.C. - This offensive tackle from Aiken committed to Tennessee in June, but a lot has changed on Rocky Top since that time and an impressive performance this week leading up to the Shrine Bowl has people talking.

Schofield talked of first day at the Shrine Bowl, and the new coach for the Volunteers.

"It feels great to be here at the Shrine Bowl," said JerQuari Schofield. "It's been a lot of fun so far. I just came up here to play football and help out the kids. I felt like I proved a lot during my senior year for this."

The 6-foot-6, 296-pound lineman is recruited to play offensive tackle on the next level. He is committed to Tennessee, but considering other schools.

"I love the atmosphere up at Tennessee," he said. "If I go to Tennessee I will have a great opportunity to play on Sundays. I do still plan to take some visits. Clemson, Newberry and Charleston Southern are recruiting me pretty heavily.

"I am going up to Tennessee January 26. I know I will probably take an official visit to Clemson as well. I like Clemson. I like how the players run down the hill. The atmosphere is real good there."

Schofield committed to the previous coaching staff at Tennessee, and he has talked with the new head coach.

"I talked to coach [Lane] Kiffin," he said. "I think he is a good guy. He is real up beat. He seems nice. I guess that is just what Tennessee felt like they had to do. I am still committed to them though."
