Five Southeast weekend visits to watch 

April, 5, 2013
Five players making key visits this weekend:

QB Drew Barker, Tennessee (Hebron, Ky./Conner): The ESPN Watch List prospect is among a small group of prospects in Knoxville, Tenn. That will give Tennessee's coaches plenty of time to spend with the 6-foot-4, 205-pound pocket passer. While Barker has always expressed interest in the Volunteers, he could be affected by the fact that Tennessee signed two highly rated quarterbacks in the 2013 class. Barker has also shown interest in Louisville, Kentucky and Ohio State. Tennessee coaches have said they'd like to sign a quarterback in every class.

LB Dillon Bates, Alabama (Ponte Vedra, Fla./Ponte Vedra): One of the elite prospects in the country, Bates is scheduled to visit Alabama this weekend. Bates is taking his time in his recruitment and not offering any hints as to where he's heading -- other than one. Bates has shown strong interest in Tennessee, where his father, Bill Bates, was a standout defensive back. Still, Bama has plenty to offer the 6-foot-3, 213-pound prospect despite his legacy to the Volunteers. This is their chance to prove it.
