One of the Volunteers' greatest needs is to get more speed on defense. Thus, securing a commitment from a legacy prospect like Elliot Berry will be a priority with the Class of 2014.
Creekside (Ga.) High School coaches move Berry around the field, playing a variety of positions on both sides of the ball, including defensive end. At 5-feet-11, 185 pounds, an opportunity to play linebacker in a 4-3 set looks like his best fit.
Creekside's season ended prematurely with a 27-24 loss to Thomas County Central in the opening round of the GHSA Class AAAAA state playoffs. The Seminoles entered as the No. 3 seed from Region 4-AAAAA.
Elliot and twin brother Evan Berry will again compete for the Seminoles' track team in the spring.
They are the younger brothers of former Tennessee All-American Eric Berry and sons of former Vol James Berry.
