Tana Patrick Talks of Trip to Knoxville

Tana Patrick, Scout.com four-star linebacker from Stevenson-North Jackson, (Ala.), has received several scholarship offers from coast-to-coast. He took an unofficial visit to an SEC school this weekend and talks about the trip.

"I went up to Tennessee," said Tana Patrick. "The visit went real good. We toured the facilities and watched the basketball game. I talked to coach [Phillip] Fulmer and coach [John] Chavis for a while."

"The coaches were telling me how good I looked on the field. They told me about the position they are recruiting me to play. They said they wanted me to play Will linebacker."

Patrick has received offers from schools such as Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, LSU, Nebraska and USC, but he does not know of an official offer from the Volunteers.

"They may have offered, but I don't think they have yet," Patrick said. "They didn't really say anything about offering, but I am pretty sure they are going to."

"I really like Tennessee. I like their coaches. I like coach Chavis. I think he is a nice guy. Coach Fulmer seems like he is pretty cool as well."

The Scout.com National 100 linebacker does not have any other visits scheduled at this time and does not list any favorites.
