Being used in an offense is a top priority for tight end Brian Ellis of Daytona Beach (Fla.) Mainland.
His interest in Tennessee, which he visits Jan. 14, is due to that factor.
"They use the tight end a lot," Ellis said about the Vols. "I don't really know what to expect on the visit but that's why I'm going to check it out."
No other visits are planned for the 6-foot-4, 235 pound prospect. He visited Florida State last weekend.
"Being my first trip it went well," Ellis said. "I got to hang out with some of the players, tour the facilities that they have down there, and learned a lot about what they have to offer me as a school."
LSU was in the picture, but Ellis hasn't heard from the Tigers in some time.
"I really don't have any favorites, but I haven't been talking to them as much as some others," Ellis said.
Ellis also may visit Florida.
