Britt surprised, excited by Vols offer

InsideTennessee keeps you on top of all the latest Tennessee football recruiting news. Scroll down to read about a prospect who picked up a Tennessee offer on his first visit to Knoxville.

J.K. Britt was slipping into a Tennessee jersey inside Neyland Stadium when head coach Butch Jones approached him with a surprise he described as "just awesome."

The Scout three-star cornerback picked up a Tennessee offer during his first trip to Rocky Top.

Though Britt said he wasn't expecting the Vols to pull the trigger so soon, he's certainly glad they did.

"It was really exciting – like scoring a touchdown exciting," Britt said of the moment when Jones informed him of his offer. "It was almost like winning a big game."

The Class of 2015 standout said his relationship with Tennessee running backs coach Robert Gillespie was what brought him to Knoxville from his hometown of Newnan, Ga.

But during his time on campus, Britt said his favorite part was getting to know more of Tennessee's coaches.

"I think I'll remember the coaches most," Britt told InsideTennessee. "I think it's a turning point for this team. I think they're headed in the right direction."

The 5-foot-11, 187-pounder said touring Tennessee's newly finished athletic facilities was his second favorite highlight from the unofficial.

"I really liked all the facilities," Britt told IT. "I was really surprised. The facilities are second to none."

Overall, Britt has a hard time finding anything negative from his time in Knoxville, saying he'll " for sure" be back in the spring to learn more about the Vols.

"It's pretty high," Britt said of where his Tennessee visit ranks when compared to others. "I think it went just as good as any visit I've been on, if not better."

Britt, who owns 11 offers, stopped by Georgia Tech and Ole Miss before trekking to Tennessee. He plans to visit Clemson next weekend.

He has no leaders or favorites at the moment.
