In the second edition of this new feature, we go south to Gator Country to talk to Gainesville Florida Head Coach Ryan Smith.

Smith, a veteran head coach in the Florida High School system, is not only sending one commitment to the Vols but two. We visited with Smith about the Vols pledge Trevarris Saulsberry.

Question: What kind of player is Saulsberry?

Answer: Trevarius is more of a big plugger type guy. He is bigger than Jordan and will definitely play on the inside at the next level. He is currently is 6-foot-5, 270 pounds. I think he will put on another 30 or 40 pounds during his college career.

Question: What are some of his strengths?

Answer: His size and his wing span definitely give him an advantage over most opponents. He is another big athletic guy that can really move well for his size. Also a very intelligent young man on and off the field, he uses everything to his advantage.

Question: How does he use his football smarts to his advantage?

Answer: He figures stuff out really quick. He is a problem solver on and off the field. He can read offenses and what his man is doing to figure out where the ball is going.

Question: What are your expectations of Saulsberry at the next level, at the University of Tennessee?

Answer: He is going to be an awesome player for Tennessee. He and Jordan have made our defense phenomenal, they are difference makers.

Question: Tell us what type of player Saulsberry is off the field?

Answer: He is a lot quieter and laid back than most of the guys. He and Jordan are polar opposites. You don't know when Trevarrius is in the room, but you definitely know it when he is on the football field.

Question: Jordan Williams and Saulberry both are committed to play football at the University of Tennessee, why do you think your home town Gators didn't offer them?

Answer: I have been coaching here for a while and had one of the best linebackers in the state last year and they didn't recruit him at all. It doesn't make a lot of sense; he ended up signing at Miami. These two guys are going to be great defensive linemen in the SEC; there is no doubt about it. After the class Florida signed last year of defensive linemen I guess they thought they had enough, they missed out on two really good ones right in their own backyard.

Saulsberry as a junior earned second Team All State DL honors for 4A classification. First Team All Area DL by the Gainesville Sun.
