One positions that college coaches are always hunting for is the defensive tackle position.
It appears that the DT position is definitely a position of need for the UT Vols.
One big DT that is already appearing on the Vols radar for 2012 is Louisiana's Gerron Borne.
The East St. John product confirmed with InsideTennessee.com that he indeed has interest in the Volunteers and reports an offer from UT.
"I'm hearing that Tennessee has offered," Borne said. "I have a lot of interest in their football program."
The 6-foot-3, 275-pound defender admits that he only knows a little about the Knoxville based University.
"I don't know too much about them," Borne said. "I have watched them on television a couple of times. I love the atmosphere and I love the way everyone sings Rocky Top."
Borne hopes to take a visit to Rocky Top, either for a Junior Day or possibly a camp this summer.
