Tacoi Sumler is intrigued by the Volunteers and especially the Southeastern Conference.

Sumler has quite a few offers from school all across the nation, but hasn't worked on narrowing down the list quite yet.

"I do not have a top five at this moment, but look forward to having a top soon," Sumler said.

Sumler claims to have official offers from F.I.U, Florida State, UCF, South Carolina, Duke, Ole Miss, Stanford, Minnesota, Clemson, Rutgers, Iowa, Marshall, Tulane, West Virginia, Virginia, Oregon, Tennessee, Auburn, Kansas State, Louisville, Memphis, Nebraska, Purdue, and Wake Forest.

The young wide receiver says he would like to use one of his official visits for a trip to Rocky Top.

"I would like to take an official to Tennessee," said Sumler. "I like the program as a whole, and I hear the school and facilities are amazing."

He may be a Miami native, but Sumler says he doesn't mind getting away from home.

"Distance is not a factor in my college decision," Sumler said.

Although Sumler is from the South he doesn't feel pressure to stay in the SEC, but he does believe it would be an honor.

"Not realy, but it would be an honor to play in the SEC, some consider it as the best conference," Sumler said. "I believe it, if not the best, is one of the best."

Sumler is currently listed at 5' 9" and 165 pounds with a bench press of 250 pounds and a core GPA of an impressive 3.7.

As a junior, the wide receiver reeled in 54 catches for 994 yards and 17 touchdowns. He also added five interceptions on defense.
