Nashville (Tn) produced the top talent in Tennessee in 2011 in offensive tackle and Vols signee Antonio Richardson. Even though Memphis (East High School) running back Brian Kimbrow is the top talent in 2012, doesn't mean the Music City isn't producing top tier talent.
McGavock defensive end Caleb Azubike has been a hot commodity in the recent weeks. This past weekend, the Nashville defensive end gained a prized offer from the Miami (Fl) Hurricanes.
" It (Miami offer) feels good. They are are up there on my list. I hope to keep in contact with them,and find out more about the U."
Azubike has visited Tennessee during spring pracactice,but came back a little disappointed because no offer was given.
" It was a beautiful place. It was very big as I expeceted,and I loved the whole visit. I got to go into the meeting rooms and into the weight room. The weight room really caught my attention it was great."
The Nashville product did not get a chance to talk with defensive line coach Lance Thompson much,but did get chance to meet up with line backers coach Peter Sirmon.
" He (Thompson) gets the job done. When I saw the scrimmage the defensive got it done. I really liked seeing that."
Last week, Coach Sirmon went to McGavock to check in on Azubike. Azubike was happy to learn that he should be receiving an offer at camp this summer.
" Coach Sirmon came and said he loved everything about me. The main reason why they haven't offered is because on film I am 205lbs. But now that I'm 240 they want to evaluate me at my current weight before they offer."
The Vols intend to offer Azubike when he comes to camp in Knoxville this summer.
Many Tennessee fans are wondering why the staff has not offerd,but it's simply just a numbers game of high hopes and misses. The Nashville star recently had his spring game where he finished with six tackles,two sacks,anda forced fumble.
Along with the Miami offer, Azubike think that the Michigan State Spartains,and Maryland will be his next two offers.
Virginia,Virginia Tech,and Purdue all have came by McGavock High School today,and UCLA and Michigan will came sometime this week also.
