The University of Tennessee is looking for athletic offensive linemen.

One recent official visitor fits that build - Arkansas athlete Dakota Mosley currently plays tight end. The question is what position the UT coaching staff is recruiting the big man to play.

"They are saying tight end right now," Mosley told InsideTennessee.com. "The visit went well. I thought everything was really nice."

Mosley stands 6-foot-5 and weighs 255 pounds, and the chances of him growing into an offensive lineman with quick feet is a distinct possibility.

This past weekend's official visit to Knoxville wasn't Mosley's first trip to Rocky Top. He attended a summer camp there and then came back during the fall.

"I know a lot about the school already," Mosley admitted. "I have been there several times."

Mosley has been impressed by the Tennessee coaching staff.

"They are a great group of coaches," Mosley said. "The way they relate to their players, the way they motivate them is great."

Mosley thinks he will take a couple more official visits before making a final decision.

"Right now I'm planning on taking official visits to Auburn and Florida State," Mosley said. "I want to check out a few schools before making a decision."

Mosley was hosted by fullback Austin Johnson and enjoyed his time on campus and getting to know all the current UT football players.

"They are a great group of guys," Mosley said. "They have such a great relationship with Coach Kiffin and the coaching staff. It's impressive."

Mosley joined his high school teammate and running back Michael Dyer on the trip.

"Michael really had a great time," Mosley said. "It went really well for him."

Tennessee recruiting coordinator and assistant head coach Ed Orgeron is recruiting the Arkansas duo.

"Coach O is great," Mosley said. "He is a great coach. Tennessee has recruited us harder than anyone."
