Tennessee snagged what some called that best senior quarterback in the state of Florida in the 2012 class out of Bartram Trail (Fla.) High School in Nathan Peterman this past February.

Now, the Volunteers are shopping in Jacksonville, Fla., once again and have gotten the attention of rising senior offensive lineman Tylar Reagan, who visited Rocky Top for camp this past Saturday.

"I talked to coach (Sam) Pittman for a little while," Reagan told InsideTennessee. "He has been recruiting me from Jacksonville, Fla., for a while. He is a really good coach and he worked we me on fundamentals today and stuff like that."

Reagan, who reports a 3.1 core GPA, already has offers from Tennessee, Kentucky, UCONN, FIU, FAU, UCF, USF, Troy, Middle Tennessee, Iowa State, Georgia State, Iowa State and Arkansas.

The 6-foot-5, 270-pounder came to work for Tennessee's offensive/defensive line camp and got the results he was looking for.

"It went really well," he said. "We started off doing some pro agility and getting our height and weight. Then we went outside and the first practice went well.

"Tennessee is a beautiful place and I had a lot of fun today during camp. It was hot out here, but I got it done and worked hard."

Vols offensive line coach, Sam Pittman, has been impressed with what he has seen out of Reagan thus far.

"Coach Pittman says that he really likes me as a big lean guy because I am big, but not chubby," Reagan said. "I move well, bending my hips and really moving my feet well."

Reagan, who plays offensive guard for Bartram Trail, blocked for Nathan Peterman's 2011 offensive line that had a 1,500 yard running back and gave up less than 10 sacks all season as a group.

While Reagan says he will likely slide out to offensive tackle in 2012, he projects best at guard at the next level and says his relationships with coaches will be vital to gaining his signature.

"Definitely the relationship with the coaches is important," he said. "If you can't get along with the coaches you aren't going to have a good career. Academics are definitely important too. You have to make sure they have your major and stuff like that."
