Vols offer grant to OT

<!--Default For Tennessee is to ignore-->Tennessee football recruiters are wasting no time in their search for more offensive line help.

Last Thursday, one day after National Signing Day of 2004, the Vols reportedly offered a scholarship for the 2005 signing class. The recipient was Chris Scott, a 6-6, 310-pound offensive tackle prospect from Lovejoy, Ga.

''I got offered by Tennesee the day after signing day, and Georgia offered me the day after that,'' Scott told Ryan Jordan of TheInsiders.com. ''I like them and Florida State, Michigan, Auburn and Oklahoma.''

Although Scott is a lifelong Georgian, he grew up following the powerful Seminole teams of the 1990s.

''I'm an FSU fan,'' he said. ''I started liking them when I was 7 or 8.''

Tennessee signed one of Scott's Lovejoy High linemates last week, securing the services of Anthony Parker. That could help in the Vols' recruitment of Scott. Of course, another Lovejoy teammate, Jeremy Lomax, signed with Georgia. Both have offered Scott advice regarding the recruiting process.

''They told me it gets real hectic,'' Scott said, ''but it's a ton of fun at the end.''

Scott, who reportedly runs the 40 in 5.3, says he will not commit anytime soon, preferring to take his time and weigh his options carefully.

From the looks of it, there will be plenty of options to weigh.
