LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. — Jarrett Guarantano has high expectations when he gets to Tennessee, starting Day 1.
"Either SEC championship or bust," the Scout No. 1-rated quarterback in the East Region told InsideTennessee.
The Volunteers carry a six-game winning streak into 2016 and will likely be in the top 20 in this season's final poll. Guarantano was in attendance to see the Big Orange put 53 on the board versus Vanderbilt in November.
"I'm very excited for the type of offense that they run," Guarantano said of Tennessee. "I think it fits my skill set. I'm just really excited for the future when it comes to that point working with (Tennessee assistant) coach (Mike) DeBord and working with (quarterback) Josh (Dobbs) next year and just being able to get better as a football player."
The Bergen (N.J.) Catholic High School senior plans to enroll in classes in Knoxville this summer. He spent the week in the Sunshine State competing as an Under Armour All-Americn. An official visit to Knoxville is in the works for the weekend of Jan. 29. He'll have his recruiter's hat on with Scout four-star offensive guard Landon Dickerson possibly being in Knoxville again as well.
"I know Landon's coming down, so that's a pretty big part of it," Guarantano said. "We need a big offensive tackle. He could definitely be the one that we want."
