One Tennessee commitment got a first hand chance to see first hand what it's like being a Vol.

Four star wide out Markeith Ambles spent a couple of days on an unofficial visit to Rocky Top this past weekend. He got the opportunity to set in a few position meetings and watch his future team take on UCLA.

"It was a great visit," Ambles told InsideTennessee.com. "I got a chance to get to know the coaching staff and my future teammates a lot better. I feel like I'm already a part of the family atmosphere there. They are all great to be around."

Ambles thought the Volunteers let a game get away from them that Tennessee should have won.

"It was a very exciting game," Ambles said. "I thought we should have won it though. We couldn't get things going offensively; our defense really came to play."

What did Ambles think if his first game day experience on Rocky Top?

"Very exciting," Ambles said. "I couldn't believe how crazy the crowd was. To see the Vol Walk, to experience everything, to watch the team run through the T, I can't wait to get there."

There had been rumors that Ambles might graduate early and enroll in January; the Georgia wide out explained that wasn't the case.

"I will graduate in May and show up in Knoxville in June," Ambles said. "I'm ready to get up there and help our team. I see myself spending a lot of time in the orange and white checkerboards."

One thing the visit has helped Ambles with is the fact he is starting to learn his way around the UT campus and Knoxville.

"I'm starting to figure out to get around a lot better," Ambles laughed. "This is going to be my home for the next few years; I need to get use to it. I love everything about UT."

Ambles is getting to know the Vol coaching staff much better.

"There are all great guys that care about you more than just football," Ambles said. "I talk to them a lot; they are always asking me how my family is doing, how I'm doing in the classroom etc."

According to Ambles the plan is for him to make an early impact at Rocky Top.

"I want to play early," Ambles said. "I'm definitely a Vol for life, I'm very happy with my decision to commit to Tennessee."

Ambles is currently playing in an offense at his high school that may need him in several positions.

"Right now I have over 450 yards in three games," Ambles said. "I may play quarterback this week, I'm not sure yet."
