One Tennessee high school prospect left Rocky Top on Saturday very impressed with the Volunteers.

McMinnville offensive lineman Cody Robinson has been to Knoxville on several occasions. His dad Ray played for the Vols and the younger Robinson has grown up wearing and cheering for the Orange and White.

"It was a really good time, we had a lot of fun," Robinson told InsideTennessee.com. "The Orange and White game went well. The offense had some problems; they have some unsolved issues."

Robinson, who currently has eight official offers, got a chance to visit with the Tennessee coaching staff.

"I talked to Coach (Harry) Hiestand and Coach (Jim) Chaney a lot yesterday," Robinson noted. "They seem like they like me a lot."

There is no doubt that there is one offer that Robinson is still waiting on.

"I think they are going to offer," Robinson said. "I just think it's a matter of time."

Robinson, a 6-foot-4, 310-pound athlete from McMinnville Tennessee, has earned All Region honors for the last two years.

The eight schools that have offered the talented lineman include Duke, Syracuse, Memphis, Vanderbilt, MTSU, Western Kentucky, Tulane and Tennessee Chattanooga.

Robinson plans on making another trip to Rocky Top in the near future.

"I will be going to one of the one-day offensive linemen camps at Tennessee for sure," Robinson. "They want me to come to camp and they want to get a chance to see me perform there."

Robinson has always loved Rocky Top, one of the reasons is obvious.

"It's Tennessee," Robinson said. "I love the tradition, I love the fan support. There was over 35,000 fans there for a spring game. I love everything about Tennessee football."
