Bellamy feeling Rocky Top?

Bellamy feeling Rocky Top?

Davin Bellamy is committed to FSU and he returned from there last weekend speaking highly of the Seminoles. A visit to Tennessee this weekend may have him singing a different tune.

"Man, I don't know... I loved it up there at Tennessee this weekend," Davin Bellamy told Scout Sunday afternoon. "I had a great feeling when I was up there, the vibe was great, I liked the coaches, and I feel that program is about to go in the right direction."

If Tennessee wants to sign Bellamy, they have to convince him that he belongs in Knoxville, not Tallahassee.

They made a strong run at that over the past two days.

"The big thing about FSU and Tennessee is, I feel wanted when I am at FSU and I feel needed when I am at Tennessee.

"After Butch Jones watched one play of my video, he said that Tennessee does not have a rush end like me. Tennessee has a lot of big defensive ends, but they need pass rushers like me.

"The coaches showed me what it is going to be like there, how they will run things like a business, and I loved it. I love the tradition there, the coaches were very impressive, and they really have my attention."

The 6-foot-5, 230 pound four-star out of Chamblee, Ga. remains committed to Florida State today, but will it stay that way through Signing Day?

"I have not changed my mind, but Tennessee really impressed me. My decision is something I really have to think about now. Tennessee showed me a lot and I know they need me there."

Bellamy will visit Georgia officially next weekend and that will be his final official visit.

He is the No. 27 defensive end in the country.
