Jerron Seymour is looking at Tennessee differently now that he's seen the school in person.
The 5-foot-8, 180-pound running back from Hialeah (Fla.) High School visited UT on July 20 and took part in UT's summer camp.
Seymour said his interest in UT has grown now that he's seen the school's campus.
"I liked it a lot," he said. "I saw every part of the school. It was interesting and I really liked it.
"It was very good for me to see the campus and to get used to being up there. I felt very comfortable."
Seymour said he was comfortable working with UT's coaching staff during the camp.
"I like them," he said. "They're easy to talk to and easy to relate to."
That includes head coach Derek Dooley.
Seymour said he's impressed with Dooley's plan to build a respectable program at UT.
"He seems to be very caring and very helpful," Seymour said. "Whenever I have a problem I can always go to him for answers."
Seymour said UT is one of several schools to offer him a scholarship.
He said he also has offers from Cincinnati, West Virginia, Minnesota, Memphis and Florida International.
Seymour wouldn't name a leader but said UT has an advantage after his visit.
He said he plans to return to Knoxville during an official visit on Sept. 18 to watch the Vols play Florida.
Another school to watch with Seymour could be Miami.
He's still waiting on an offer from the Hurricanes, who are appealing to Seymour because of their close proximity to Hialeah.
