St. Clair Shores (Mich.) South Lake offensive lineman Kyonta Stallworth opens his junior season on Thursday, but the week already got off to a good start when he added his fifth offer of the process on Monday from Tennessee.
"Coach Strip [Steve Stripling] called me and he offered," Stallworth reported. "That was my first time talking to him. He said I have good potential and would like to see me in one of their uniforms."
Stallworth has yet to visit Tennessee, but he got a summary of the school from Stripling during their conversation.
"He told me he wanted me to come out there and visit the school, check out a game," Stallworth said. "He said they are only about six hours away, so he wants me to come out there and hang out at the campus a little bit. He said it is a nice atmosphere down there."
The offer from Tennessee follows previous offers from Florida, Michigan State, UCLA and Eastern Illinois. Earlier this month Stallworth was planning to make a commitment to Michigan State in near future, but those plans may be on hold.
"It might be pushed out a little longer, later in my junior year," Stallworth said. "I'd say around January."
The Spartans still hold a strong lead for Stallworth, but he would like to see the other schools that have offered him before he decides.
"That is one of the reasons, but Michigan State is where I want to go right now," Stallworth said. "They have been recruiting me well, I like the staff up there and right now that's where I am looking to go."
The 6-foot-4, 270-pound Stallworth will be making his next visit to Michigan State this coming weekend to see the Spartans open the season against Western Michigan.
