With players like Antonio Richardson, Zach Fulton, James Stone, Ja'Wuan James and Alex Bullard the Tennessee Volunteers might have the best offensive line in the country heading into the 2013 season.

However, the question has now becomes, who will replace the all-star cast in 2014? Four seniors and one sure-fire first round NFL draft pick, the Vols have to focus on replacing their big men in the 2014 signing class.

Three-star offensive guard Tyronne Prescod has been to Knoxville on several occasions and might just provide the versatility that offensive line coach Don Mahoney and the Vols are looking for.

"They worked me out at center, guard and I did tackle too," Prescod told InsideTennessee.com following a camp workout. "I went everywhere. I can play anywhere really."

Prescod, who certainly favors Auburn and N.C. State, says that an offer from the Vols would definitely throw a wrench in his recruitment, which looked to be coming to an end.

"They want the best and only the best," he said. "That is what they have been telling me. They are close to offering. They are going to review the film. Tennessee offering would put them to the top."

The 6-foot-5, 331-pounder is ranked as the No. 43 offensive guard in the 2014 class and added that three-star offensive tackle and Tennessee commitment Orlando Brown is also recruiting him to Rocky Top.

"I like the coaching staff and mostly the 2014 class," Prescod said. "I have been talking to those guys, mostly, Orlando Brown. He plays tackle and we have been to some camps together. He has been telling me it is a great campus, a great place and there is a good vibe here. He wants to me to come. He told me if I get an offer I should commit."

The No. 43 offensive guard in the 2014 class, Prescod could have a decision as early as next week if an offer doesn't come from the Orange & White, but if it does things could really get interesting.

Prescod hopes to have his decision over and aide the Columbia (Ga.) High School Eagles on improving a disappointing 5-5 2012 campaign. Teammate and three-star outside linebacker Deshon Cooper accompanied Prescod on the visit.
