In less than 48 hours one South Carolina high school prospect is expecting and hoping to get some good news.

Offensive guard Jason Rexroad participated in Tennessee's Linemen Camp on Saturday, and he was told to give the Vol coaches a call Monday afternoon after 2 p.m. It's that anticipation of the call that has been exciting for the standout athlete.

"I feel that I had a good camp," Rexroad told InsideTennessee.com. "I won every one of my one-on-one situations. I felt like I did as about as good as I could have. I gave it everything I had. I ended up running a 5.01 forty."

Rexroad, a 6-foot-4, 275-pound offensive guard from Myrtle Beach, S.C., acknowledged that he has a connection to Tennessee and that is a factor in why the Vols are leading for his services.

"My dad went to school at Tennessee," Rexroad said. "I have liked Tennessee for a long time. We have been a few times over the years. I got to attend the Vanderbilt game last year."

Where does Tennessee stand with Rexroad?

"They are definitely my favorites," Rexroad said. "I'm not sure if I will pull the trigger instantly or not. If it feels right and I get that feeling in my gut I will. We will have to wait and see. I know that this is the offer I'm hoping for the most."

The Tennessee call won't be the only one the talented lineman will be making Monday.

"I'm suppose to call Georgia Tech, North Carolina State, and East Carolina also," Rexroad said. "It could end up being a very exciting day for me."

Rexroad was impressed with the new Tennessee coaching staff.

"They were all very cool," Rexroad said. "Coach Chaney, Coach Wilcox and Coach Dooley are the three I have spent a lot of time with. I really like Coach Hiestand a lot also. I like the way he coaches."
