As a junior he rushed for 1,857 yards, passed for 800 yards and accounted for 39 touchdowns. He also started on defense where he recorded 124 tackles and six interceptions. His versatility led to schools recruiting him at four different positions. He was highest rated cornerback left on Tennessee's board.
UT's attention will now turn to No. 10 cornerback Michael Grant of Stone Mountain, Ga. The 5-11, 175-pound Grant runs a 4.4 in the 40 and is one of the nation's best sprinters at 200 meters. The Vols track program is known to be a strong attraction but Georgia is his leader and one of his Stephenson High School teammates recently committed to continue his track career in Athens. Grant is scheduled to be in Knoxville Jan. 23.
Cornerback is a need position for the Vols in this class and UT coaches are hoping to sign a couple of prospects that can impact the position. The Insider's No. 21 rated cornerback, Tony Carter, 5-10, 145, 4.37, is still considering the Vols and may visit this weekend.
Of course, like everything else in recruiting, that's always subject to change.
