Offensive lineman Kevin Revis said he had a “real good visit” to the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga on Monday.
The Mocs have offered a scholarship to Revis, who announced last week that he is leaving the University of Tennessee. The 6-foot-1, 275-pound former Rhea County all-state lineman said he will decide this week where he’s transferring.
How will he decide?
“With a lot of prayer and I’ll do some fishing,” he said, explaining that the latter allows him to clear his head and think about things.
Revis said he didn’t plan to visit any other schools this week.
He met Mocs head coach Russ Huesman and offensive line coach Geep Wade, as well as several other coaches. He also met with several players, including quarterback B.J. Coleman, a UT transfer.
“It was a real good visit and I enjoyed getting to see the campus and meet everybody,” he said.
Revis played in one game for the Volunteers last season as a redshirt freshman and has three years of eligibility remaining if he transfers to a Football Championship Subdivision program. The Mocs lost three three-year starting offensive linemen from their 2010 team.
