It had been two years since Evan and Elliot Berry has stepped foot on campus at the University of Tennessee.

However, Evan Berry's first visit as an actual recruit was an experience in which he took in all the change that has happened on Rocky Top.

"It was fun," Evan Berry told InsideTennessee. "It was a good experience. I am trying to get a couple of camps under my belt and get the feel of the campus or whatever. It is a lot different since my brother was here. Campus has kind of changed. I'm trying to get a good look at that, but it was fun."

The Fairburn, Ga., native and brother of former All-American Tennessee safety Eric Berry got his first look at a new position in front of the Tennessee coaching staff Monday.

"I played corner for the first time today and I did pretty well, but I have a lot to learn," Berry said. "That is what I am here to do. I have to be diverse in the secondary. Everybody likes a diverse athlete on their defense. I have to learn how to player corner as well as a little bit of safety."

The 5-foot-10, 193-pounder also got a chance to meet with the Tennessee coaching staff for the first time, formally.

"I talked to coach (Derek) Dooley, coach (Derrick) Ansley, the defensive backs coach and we just talked about a couple of goals," he said. "Every player doesn't get the opportunity to talk to the coaches. I am just glad I got that chance. I enjoy every bit of it. I am glad I had that chance."

Evan Berry, who has offers from Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Georgia, Tennessee, Clemson and others, says he isn't talking to any school more than another.

"I give every school a fair chance," Berry said. "I am basically open right now. I can't really say where I am going to go or where I am leaning."

However, both Elliot and Evan have been told they are a very high priority for the Vols coaching staff in the 2014 class and hope to attend school together on the next level.

"They said that me and my brother are some of the top prospect in this class," Berry said. "Now we have to show it. We are trying to stay together, but he I want to go somewhere else or he wants to go somewhere else that is the way it's going to be."

The Creekside (Ga.) High School prospects arrived at Tennessee fresh off a visit to Georgia and will shut down their visits to prepare for their high school season following their trip to Knoxville.
