Former Georgia signee looking at Vols

It looks like Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin may give former Georgia signee Dexter Moody a second chance.

Moody, who was released from his letter of intent by Georgia last month after getting into trouble at his high school, tells Michael Carvell of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that he plans to attend Saturday's Orange and White spring game along with his father and expects to receive a scholarship offer from the Vols.

Moody, who's from Twin City, Ga., has admitted to getting into an altercation with a male chemistry teacher at Emanuel County Institute. One report said Moody threatened the teacher. His coach at ECI, Milan Turner, said that Moody did not follow the plan Georgia laid out for him regarding his eligibility, schoolwork and behavior, prompting the Bulldogs to give him his unconditional release.

The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Moody was an ESPNU 150 selection and rated as the No. 10 outside linebacker prospect in the country.

The Vols are desperate for linebacker help. They just recently moved Rico McCoy back to weakside linebacker, and he's the only linebacker on Tennessee's roster who's started more than one game during his college career.
