Who will the University of Tennessee find to play quarterback for its 2010 recruiting class?

That question is on every Volunteer fan's mind in the country. After several talented signal callers have opted to go else where, the main question is what other quarterbacks in the country fit what the Vol coaching staff is looking for.

One signal caller that appears on the UT radar is Florida's Turner Baty.

Baty recently attended Florida's Friday night camp and feels he performed well.

"I had a great camp," Baty told InsideTennessee.com Monday. "I made all my throws, I thought I performed well."

According to Baty, who also attended a one day summer camp at the University of Tennessee, has two schools out front for his services.

"Tennessee and Florida are my top two schools," Baty said. "Right now I'm just playing the waiting game, waiting to see who else offers me."

Baty currently has one official offer from Stanford.

It appears that UT's interest in Baty may be increasing since Jesse Scroggins committed to USC last week.

"I talk to Coach Eddie Gran at least once a week," Baty said. "I spoke to him last week; he told me that they were going to take a Junior College guy and at least one high school quarterback."

Baty, a 6-foot-2, 210-pound athlete played last year in California before moving back home to Florida. He is now playing his senior season at St. Thomas Aquinas in Ft. Lauderdale.

"The transition has been really good," Baty said. "I have made a lot of new friends, this feels like home to me. We have a really good football team; I'm looking forward to my senior season."

One of Baty's new friends is Michael Palardy, a current Tennessee commitment.

"Michael and I have become great friends," Baty explained. "It would be great to play football at the next level with him."

Baty is hoping for an offer.

"It would be huge to get an offer from Tennessee," Baty said. "It wouldn't take me too long to make a decision."
