One of Saturday campers at the University of Tennessee has been to the Knoxville campus on several occasions.

For South Carolina athlete Martin Aiken, Saturday's O-line vs. D-line Camp was an opportunity for him to show the Vol coaching staff exactly what his game is all about.

The four star defensive lineman was very pleased with his performance at Rocky Top.

"I learned a lot today," Aiken said. "I knew coming in from watching them this fall this would be a place you were going to work hard. That was very true today, I got to experience some of the hard work Coach Dooley makes his team goes through everyday."

Aiken, a 6-3, 250-pounds, has Tennessee in the running for his services.

"Tennessee is a place I can come and be well taken care of academically and a place I can excel athletically," Aiken said. "They are definitely a school that I'm considering, they are definitely up there."

Aiken enjoyed getting a chance being coached by the Tennessee coaching staff on Saturday.

"It was great," Aiken said. "I learned so much today, little things I was doing wrong. Their coaches are great teachers and great guys."

Aiken finished his junior season with 106 tackles, 36 for a loss with 13 sacks last fall.

Aiken currently has over 25 offers including ones from Tennessee, Alabama, Arkansas, Auburn, Clemson, Colorado, Georgia Tech, Ilinois, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, and South Carolina to name a few.
