The last seven days have been very busy for one Tennessee High School football prospect.
Brentwood Academy's Derek King can't believe what has transpired over the last seven days, he's not complaining though.
The talented athlete picked up an official offer from the state's biggest school on Saturday during Tennessee's Junior Day, only to get another one from the other SEC in his home town.
"Tennessee offered me Saturday and Vanderbilt offered me today," King told InsideTennessee.com. "I was really excited to be offered by the biggest school in my state and by a school less than 25 minutes from my home in Vandy."
King, a 6-foot-0, 180-pound defensive back and running back had an outstanding junior season and is looking forward to this spring and summer to get to know some college coaches better.
The talented athlete was also impressed with Tennessee's New Head Coach Derek Dooley.
"He wants to keep the best players in his state at home at the University of Tennessee," King said. "He really seems focused on returning to all the traditions of the past for Tennessee Football. Last year they seemed to get away from a lot of them. It's good to see him returning to them."
Tradition is one of the key things that attract King to Rocky Top.
Where does Tennessee rank in King's favorites after Saturday's visit?
King is also excited about the offer from Vanderbilt.
"It's close to home," King said. "It's in the SEC and it's also a great academic situation."
