KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The 13-year-old brother of Tennessee
safety Eric Berry says he's accepted a scholarship offer to play
for the Volunteers.

That's without having played a single down of high school
football.

Evan Berry will be a ninth-grader at Creekside High School in
Fairburn, Ga., in the fall and is expected to play quarterback and
safety like his brother.

He told recruiting Web site Rivals.com that he thinks Tennessee
seems the best for him and he wants to play for defensive
coordinator Monte Kiffin.

Berry would first be eligible to play for Tennessee in 2013, the
fifth year in coach Lane Kiffin's six-year contract. Monte Kiffin
signed a three-year contract in January, which wouldn't guarantee
he would still be on staff if both Berry and Tennessee honor the
commitment.
