When it comes to recruiting outside their state, Tennessee usually holds their own in the state of Georgia. One prospect the Volunteers are sitting pretty with at this time is Antonio Foster. Foster, 6-4 and 290 pounds, is from Valdosta (Ga.) High School and right now he says Tennessee leads for his services.
"Tennessee is my front runner," Foster said. "They are great coaches. Heck, their head coach (Philip Fulmer) was an offensive lineman and offensive line coach. That's a big plus. I plan on going up there in about three weeks for an unofficial visit."
The Vols have offered Foster along with his three other favorites at this time in South Carolina, Georgia Tech and South Florida.
"Those are the schools I like. There is just something about South Carolina that I really like. It would also be exciting to play for coach (Steve) Spurrier.
"I have family is in Atlanta and that would be really nice to play there. They have good coaches and I think I fit their scheme well too.
"I like the head coach (Jim Leavitt) at South Florida. I like the school itself and that program is on the rise. That's exciting about USF."
Foster doesn't have a timetable for a decision. So far this summer he has not attended any camps or made any unofficial visits. Foster has been home working out and getting ready for his senior season.
