Toal loves Knoxville

Wykoff (N.J.) Don Bosco Prep linebacker Brian Toal took his third official visit this past weekend and was blown away by Tennessee.
"It was great," said the 6-foot-2, 228-pounder. "I had a blast down there. I was hosted by Rick Clausen and the place is very impressive. The stadium is amazing, the facilities are awesome and the linebacker situation looks pretty good for me. They have a couple of rising seniors who are good and a few good juniors-to-be who will probably turn pro early. I could also play early if I wanted to start off at fullback."
So where does Tennessee stand now with Toal?
"They're tied at the top with Boston College," he said. "I really liked it that much, a little better than Miami. All three are in it though."
And Toal isn't ready to stop comparing just yet.
"Next weekend will be either Virginia Tech or Penn State I think and then the week after that will be either Michigan, Notre Dame or whoever is left between Tech and PSU."
Toal is ranked as the No. 3 inside linebacker in the country and the No. 25 player overall. He doesn't think he'll be ready to decide until close to Signing Day.
