Holding 23 offers already, a Washington state product received his second official offer from the University of Tennessee today.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins had received an official offer from the previous Tennessee Coaching staff but was uncertain where he stood with Derek Dooley and his new staff.

That uncertainty became clearer Tuesday when he received word from his high school coach that the new UT staff also has extended an offer.

"They called my coach today and let them know that I had an offer from them as well," Seferian-Jenkins told InsideTennessee.com Tuesday evening. "It was great to get that offer. Tennessee is a school that I have a lot of interest in and I will definitely take a visit there."

In fact the 6-foot-7, 242-pound tight end plans on attending summer camp in Knoxville.

"Coach Dooley told my coach that they want me to come in and play right away," Seferian-Jenkins said. "They are really excited about me coming to Knoxville for a visit."

That former coaching staff that moved out West after just one year to USC, also recently offered the talented tight end.

"I got my second offer from Coach Lane Kiffin," Seferian-Jenkins said. "They offered me early at Tennessee and wanted to make sure I knew I had an offer from USC."

Does Seferian-Jenkins have an early favorite?

"No everyone is very equal right now," Seferian-Jenkins said. "I want to take my time and make the right decision after visiting several schools and coaching staffs."

Seferian-Jenkins is rated as the No. 4 tight end in the country, and is ranked as a four star prospect.
