Knockdown artist likes UT

A guy with more knockdowns to his credit than Mike Tyson is taking a long look at the University of Tennessee.

Brian Leggett of Meridian (Miss.) High School is a 6-2, 285-pound offensive lineman who recorded 125 knockdown blocks as a junior last fall. In recent weeks he has received scholarship offers from West Virginia, Idaho, Princeton, Marshall, Nebraska, Illinois and Troy State.

''Florida is still my leader right now,'' he told Scott Kennedy of, ''but my top five is West Virginia, Ole Miss, Florida, Tennessee, and Georgia. Really, Florida is the only one I'm not hearing from right now.''

Leggett, who reportedly covers 40 yards in 5.1 seconds, attended Southern Miss' recent spring game and plans to visit the Ole Miss camp this summer.
