Four-star Hattiesburg (Miss.) Oak Grove linebacker Garry Pack made his first official visit this past weekend.
“I went up to Tennessee,” he said. “Everything went real good. I enjoyed myself there.”
Asked what the highlight of the trip to Rocky Top was, Pack said: “Definitely the people in their program. I really liked the players and the coaches. They were tight. I felt like those were some guys I would enjoy spending the next four years around.
“I got to sit down and talk to some of the coaches individually. Coach Fulmer explained to me how I was a perfect fit for their defensive scheme, and he told me I’d have a chance to get some early playing time. That’s what I was wanting to hear.”
His host for the weekend was defensive lineman LaRon Harris.
Rated the No. 11 inside linebacker in the nation, Pack (6-1, 213, 4.5) has narrowed his list to five schools. In addition to the Vols, he’s also going to visit Florida State (1/9), Southern Miss (1/16), Auburn (1/19) and Ole Miss (1/23).
“They’re all even right now,” he said. “I’m not looking to make my decision any time soon. But Tennessee was real good. I’m just wanting to see if the other ones will be as good as that one.”
As a senior, Pack was a one-man wrecking crew for Hattiesburg. On offense, he carried the ball 154 times for 1,483 yards and 25 touchdowns. He also caught six passes for 92 yards and one touchdown. On defense, he recorded 144 tackles, one sack and one interception.
