''I was very, very impressed," Toal told Jamie Newberg of his UT visit, "and I had a good time and a lot of fun. Their facilities are amazing... I mean ridicously nice. I like the players and coaches a lot. I do know this, Tennessee has made this harder."
Toal got an in-home visit from UT head man Phillip Fulmer on Monday and got one from Boston College on Tuesday.
Tennessee also is recruiting in-state fullback prospect David Holbert, a 6-1, 235-pounder from Brentwood Academy.
For what it's worth, Toal is also an excellent linebacker. He registered 112 tackles and 12.5 sacks as a junior. In addition, he rushed for 1,250 yards that season.
With two-year starting fullback Troy Fleming out of eligibility and two of the top three reserves -- Aaron Kirkland and Ruben Mayes -- leaving the program, Tennessee desperately needs a fullback of the Toal/Holbert ilk in this signing class.
