"I feel good, but then I'm still hurting a little bit for the team. On defense, we did our thing, but offense, our team needs to learn how to fight and push through things," he said.
"Every night, I have to be a leader. Even though I'm committed, I say I'm the same as everybody else."
"It's going to be rocking and it's going to be loud, the biggest stadium in the SEC. I'm ready to see how that is," he said.
"A lot of ‘Rocky Top.' I love it."
Other programs are and will continue to recruit the talented athlete, but as long as head coach Butch Jones is at Tennessee, that's where Cherry's pledge will stay.
"I believe in (head) coach (Butch) Jones as a head coach and a leader," Cherry said.
"You know you always have to have a backup plan, but I'm going to follow Coach Jones wherever he goes. (Linebackers coach Tommy) Thigpen, I love him, and (running backs) coach (Robert) Gillespie and the whole defensive staff, I just love it. I love the atmosphere, I love how the city is, and I love how the fans are behind their players, win or lose."
"I get letters from everybody, like forty letters a day," he said.
Besides the Tennessee-Auburn game, this season, Cherry plans to visit Florida State for the Miami game and Alabama when they play Tennessee.
