When your one of the top quarterbacks in the country there is a lot of pressure that comes along with the position and label.

Avoiding pressure in the pocket is human nature for California's signal caller Jesse Scroggins.

InsideTennessee.com caught up with Scroggins on Sunday afternoon to find out how he is feeling about his upcoming week's schedule.

"There is no time to sleep with my schedule," Scroggins laughed. "I have a very busy schedule, but I love it."

Scroggins loves competing and loves throwing the football, he will get a lot of chances to do both this week.

"I will be at Florida's camp on Tuesday through Thursday morning and then I will arrive in Tennessee Thursday evening and will be in Knoxville through Saturday."

p>According to the Scout.com four star quarterback, the tradition of both programs has intrigued him to make these trips.

"Tennessee and Florida both have such great and valued tradition," Scroggins said. "I'm very excited about both trips."

Scroggins is holding offers from both, but put to rest a rumor that has been going around.

"Right now I don't have an offer from USC," Scroggins said. "That rumor is going around, but it isn't true. I will camp there on June 22."

Scroggins and his family will make the trips together this week, with the one from Tennessee being a homecoming of sorts.

"My mom has a lot of family in Tennessee in the Memphis area," Scroggins said. "I have always thought about being closer to them. It would be neat to have my own fan base already there."

Scroggins is looking forward to spending three days in Knoxville getting to know the new Volunteer coaching staff a lot better.

"The coaches have been great over the phone," Scroggins said. "I'm really looking forward to getting to know Ed Orgeron, Lane Kiffin and Coach David Reaves and all the coaches there a lot better. They have been really easy to talk to and I'm looking forward to spending a lot of one on one time with them."

According to Scroggins, the Vol coaching staff is telling him he is their No. 1 option at the quarterback position.

"They are telling me that I'm their No. 1 at the position, that if I will come to Tennessee, others great athletes will follow."

It appears that the Volunteer's depth chart at the position may give Tennessee an advantage.

"The coaching staff has made me a ware of their situation at quarterback," Scroggins said. "It definitely could give them an advantage. They are telling me I would have a great shot of coming in and starting as a true freshmen. Of course there is no guarantee of that, I would have to come in and compete and win the job."

Scroggins plans on making a few more trips after this week before making a final decision.

"My plans right now are to make a decision in early August," Scroggins explained. "I'm looking for a place I can call home. A place that I can come in and make an immediate impact at, I will know it when I feel right about a place."
