""Right now, Tennessee and Florida are my top two schools," said Chris Leak. "I love the Tennessee offensive system. It allows the quarterback to be the guy in charge, like a general. C.J. says you have complete control, which is a quarterback's dream. Of course, I have always dreamed of playing with C.J. (brother who recently transfered to the Vols from Wake Forest)and that could be a big factor."
