Who's next on the official visit list for Rivals100 defensive end Corey Lemonier? It's none other than Tennessee, as the Vols continue to make their big south Florida push. Lemonier, 6-4 and 230 pounds, will visit Knoxville this coming weekend with teammate Calvin Smith (defensive tackle).
"I leave for Tennessee on Friday," Lemonier said. "I am looking forward to getting up there and having a fun time. Calvin is going as well. Coach (Eddie) Gran is recruiting me and it seems like I have a real good relationship with those coaches."
Lemonier, from Hialeah in south Florida, has already officially visited Florida State (9-4) and Illinois (10-2).

"Florida State is still on the top of my board. I talk with them each week and I am just listening at this point. Of course I am waiting to see what happens with the coaches and the moves they make.
"Illinois was good and was much different then I am used to. But different in a good way."
With FSU and Illinois already in the books and Tennessee this weekend, who else remains on Lemonier's short list?
"I will see what happens but teams like LSU, Auburn, and Kentucky are schools I am thinking about visiting. Miami's still in the mix for sure but I won't take an official visit there. Florida is too but I need to talk to their coaches.
"At this point I am pretty much open."
Hialeah finished the season 7-3 and failed to make the playoffs.
"The difference for us was we play in the same district as Miami Central and Northwestern and we went 0-2 against them. But overall we played better this year and I improved as a player. I made more plays this year."
