For one Tennessee High School prospect his first visit to Rocky Top this past Saturday apparently won’t be his last to Knoxville.
Nashville McGavock’s athlete Caleb Azubike visited Tennessee’s campus for the first time this past weekend and left very impressed with what the Volunteers has to offer.
“It was really a great visit,” Azubike told InsideTennessee.com. “Yes it was my first visit, but it definitely won’t be my last.”
Azubike, a 6-foot-5, 240-pound defensive end/outside linebacker, got a chance to meet several of the Volunteer coaching staff.
“I spent most of my time with Coach Lance Thompson and Coach Peter Sirmon,” Azubike said. “They were great. I got the chance to sit in on their meetings and see how it is to be a college athlete.”
Azubike also got the chance to meet Tennessee’s Head Coach Derek Dooley.
“I introduced myself to Coach Dooley, he was glad I was there, he welcomed me to Tennessee,” Azubike said. “He was glad I was there.”
According to Azubike, the Vols coaching staff is excited about his defensive playing abilities.
“They like everything about me,” Azubike said. “They want to see in action in person before they extend an offer.”
Will the Nashville athlete make a return trip to Rocky Top?
“Most definitely,” Azubike said. “I will be camping there this summer.”
Azubike was blown away by his tour of the Tennessee campus.
“It was great,” Azubike said. “Everything is state of the art.They are still building new things.”
The talented defender also got the opportunity to take in the Vol’s first scrimmage of the spring.
“Everyone was flying to the ball on defense,” Azubike noted. “It was a battle back and forth between the offense and the defense. It was very competitive.”
Azubike already has two offers, but it’s apparent Tennessee is one of his favorites.
“Tennessee is definitely up there,” Azubike said. “Boston College and Vanderbilt has offer, I’m hoping I get one from the Vols.”
