The Tennessee Volunteers are rolling, with their fourth commitment over the past few days. This one is from another offensive line prospect, Aubrey Phillips. The 6-foot-6, 328-pound propsect from Olive Branch (Miss.) High School plays tackle.
"I just committed this afternoon," Phillips said. "It was around 1:30. Tennessee is just like family. I mean I really feel at home. Both times I have been up there it has been so wonderful. I just feel like I really know the staff well and feel good with them. (OL) Coach (Greg) Adkins is a super guy as well. You feel like you can joke with him but he's also very serious."
Phillips recently transferred from Memphis (Tenn.) Booker T. Washington High School to Olive Branch. He was traveling 30 minutes to school and things got old.

"It's also a better football program. I transferred about two weeks before school ended."
Phillips projects as a tackle and he believes he fits in their new scheme pretty well.
"I do because I am better at pass pro right now. I think I have really good feet and I just attack out there. I am very excited to play in their pro style attack."
Phillips had 11 scholarship offers and picked Tennessee over Mississippi State, Penn State, Duke, Arkansas, Alabama and others. Center Kevin Revis (Evensville, Tenn.), running back Jarvis Giles (Tampa, Fla.) and cornerback Nyshier Oliver (Jersey City, N.J.) have all committed to the Vols since Thursday.
