A Georgia High School prospect and the University of Tennessee both appears to have something in common.

After attending Junior Day at Tennessee this past Saturday, Cartersville offensive lineman Justin Floyd has the Vols higher on his favorite's list.

It appears that Floyd may also be high on the Vol's interest list as well.

"They are telling me that I'm high on their list," Floyd told InsideTennessee.com. "After my visit Saturday they definitely are in my top favorites."

Floyd, a 6-foot-5, 290-pound offensive lineman, earned All-County honors as a junior.

Floyd was one of over 40 athletes that attended Derek Dooley's first Junior Day at the University of Tennessee.

"I thought it was awesome," Floyd said. "The coaches are really nice; I think they are really going to do some great things at the school."

While Floyd hasn't received an official offer yet, several schools are showing a lot of interest in his services.

Schools showing interest include Tennessee, Georgia, Clemson, Alabama, Duke, Georgia Tech, Vanderbilt and Auburn.

Saturday wasn't the first time for Floyd to make a trip to Rocky Top.

"I went to the Georgia game last season," Floyd said. "I couldn't believe how crazy the atmosphere was. Over 105,000 fans, it was the loudest game I have ever been at."

Floyd got a chance to talk to Coach Dooley and his new staff, leaving the Georgia lineman with a favorable impression.

"They want to get to know me better," Floyd said. "They want me to come to camp this summer. I want to get to know them better. I had a great relationship with Coach (Ed) Orgeron, now I want to build that type of relationship with the new coaches."
