In early April, Birmingham (Mich.) Brother Rice lineman Darris Sawtelle committed to Tennessee over scholarship offers from a host of schools including Michigan, Michigan State, Arizona State, and Nebraska. However that doesn't mean the recruiting process has stopped for Sawtelle.
"Michigan, Nebraska, Arizona State, Toledo, Michigan State, just about all of them are still recruiting me," Sawtelle said. "Calls, letters, coaches come to my school, nothing has slowed down at all. I'm still being heavily recruited."
However it doesn't look like there is much chance Sawtelle will change his commitment.
"I don't think anything would happen to change my mind," he said. "It's very doubtful."
Sawtelle said Tennessee was simply the right choice.
"Tennessee just felt right," he said. "In my heart I decided Tennessee is the best place for me."
Sawtelle plans to visit the Volunteers again during the summer.
"I'm going to their camp," Sawtelle said. "I'll visit Tennessee and that will be it."
The 6-foot-5 and 285-pound Sawtelle will play offensive tackle for the Volunteers.
