With only two scholarship quarterbacks on the roster, new University of Tennessee Head Coach Lane Kiffin is in search of the perfect quarterback to run his pro style offense.
Kiffin's staff has been working hard this spring to identify several signal callers across the country that fits what the new staff is looking for.
One signal caller that appears to be on the Vol's radar is St. Louis Missouri quarterback Steve Kaiser.
InsideTennessee.com caught with Kaiser to get his thoughts about the Tennessee Football Program.
"One of the Tennessee coaches came by this week," Kaiser said. "I called offensive coordinator Jim Chaney after they stopped by to see what they thought. They told me they liked what they saw and was in the process of getting Coach (Lane) Kiffin's evaluation and approval."
How does Kaiser feel about Tennessee's interest?
"It's great that they are showing me a lot of interest right now," Kaiser said. "Hopefully I will get an offer from them. It would be great, I have a lot of interest in their school. They are definitely one of my top schools."
"SMU is my current favorite out of the schools that have offered me," Kaiser said. "Several other schools stopped by the school the last couple of weeks."
Kaiser, a 6-foot-3, 222-pound athlete who runs a 4.76 forty, threw for over 1750 yards his junior season.
Kaiser hopes to camp at both SMU and Tennessee this summer. He has already taken an unofficial trip to Dallas to see the SMU campus.
""I really enjoyed it. It was eye opening. I loved it," Kaiser told PonyStampede.com in an earlier interview. ""When I first arrived to practice, I saw how they run practice and I really enjoyed it. I saw the coaches and how they taught and loved it. I really like this coaching staff."
