Tennessee new Head Coach Derek Dooley continues to recruit the state of Georgia with a lot of gusto.

After securing the signature of the No. 1 player from his native home state this past signing day, Dooley is returning to the Peach State to offer a lot more prospect for this class.

One Georgia Tight end that has a Tennessee offer is McEachern High School prospect Rory Anderson.

Anderson confirmed with InsideTennessee.com this past week that he indeed has an offer and interest in the Tennessee Volunteers.

"I thought it was a pretty big offer," Anderson admitted. "I didn't have an offer from the old staff, the new staff offered me a couple of weeks ago."

Anderson currently has offers from Tennessee, FIU, NC State, Purdue, Minnesota, Illinois and South Carolina.

While Anderson hasn't been to Rocky Top to see first hand what all the excitement is about, he plans on taking a trip to Knoxville in the near future.

"I'm hoping to get up there in the next month or so," Anderson said. "I have been hearing a lot of great things about the school."

One of Anderson's good friends is fellow teammate and Tennessee signee Trae Golden.

"We are really good friends," Anderson said. "He has been telling me a lot of great things about the school. It would be cool to play at the same school as Trae"

Anderson plans on doing a lot of research on the school before his visit, so he will have a better prospective of things when he arrives in Knoxville.

The talented tight end has been keeping in touch with the new Tennessee coaching staff.

"They told me they were excited about offering me," Anderson said. "They are telling me that I need to work on getting bigger and stronger."

Anderson stands at 6-foot-5, and 205-pounds. He admits that he is working on putting on some good weight.

Does Anderson have any early favorites?

"Right now Tennessee, South Carolina and Purdue are my top three," Anderson said. "I hope to get the opportunity to attend summer camp at Tennessee and perhaps South Carolina."
