There may not be a team recruiting Joe Chaisson any harder than the Tennessee Volunteers. After returning from Knoxville this past weekend for an unofficial visit, the Beaumont (Texas) Westbrook dual-threat quarterback's leader is clear.
The 6-foot-2, 167-pounder got a chance to take in everything there was to see at Tennessee this past weekend and it didn't take him long to come back with a possible decision nearing along with a big leader.
"It was nice, everything was great there and we were treated very well," Chaisson said about his visit. "They showed us the stadium. That was my favorite part. We also got to see the athletic stuff, the academic centers, and pretty much stuff that their athletes use."
Chaisson has been rumored to be a silent commit or at least nearing that point. He denies the rumors about him being committed, but isn't ruling out something in the very near future.
"I think I am close, you could say that," Chaisson said. "I still want to wait it out though and make sure I'm making the right decision with this. It's been in my mind, but I just haven't said the words yet."
The Volunteers are without a doubt the leader for the Lone Star product. Chaisson says that he has felt a lot of love from Tennessee and his recruiting coach Kurt Roper.
"The coaches were just excited to have me up there and have the chance to show me around the campus," he said. "I know they can use me well to better the team and better myself. I just get a good vibe from them."
"It's just hard to say how close I am to deciding anything."
UTEP was also the most recent offer for Chaisson. There are no other set visits at this time.
