Tennessee hosted an important visitor at its bowl practice on Monday. Offensive tackle Marcus Tatum from Mainland High School (Daytona Beach, Fla.) tweeted that he was in Tampa, Fla., to see the Vols.

This isn’t the first time Tatum has seen Tennessee up close. The 6-foot-5, 255-pound prospect took an official visit to Knoxville, Tenn., in November. He is scheduled to take an official visit to Florida on Jan. 15 and Miami on Jan. 22.
The Vols are thought of as a long shot. However, Tatum told SEC Country that his mother loved the official visit to Tennessee shortly after the trip in November.
