He's already in the U of Tennessee directory as a math major. Unless he suddenly had a huge change of heart, he's off to Tennessee.

Curious decision though since he's going to be buried on the depth chart. I have no doubt he would see some minutes this year, if he came to Minnesota. He would be on the inside track to starting for a Big Ten school as a Sophomore.

Yes, and Rick Barnes has put together two straight strong recruiting classes. It's fine to wonder why a kid will choose a school that already has a guard or three, questioning playing time, etc. But Tennessee also has a recent track record of getting these guys to the NBA or at least G-league, so some kids are going to gravitate to that even when comparing vs possible immediate playing time. They also move the ball and play fast, similar to an Auburn, Baylor, Ark, etc. Assuming that's the type of program/style Ben Johnson is building, he'll start getting more of these guys. It's actually refreshing to see he's in on some of these more nationally recognized guys. He and his staff seem like they're coming into their own now.

Vols board was saying the 24th. either way, he's in the student directory and enrolled. But, he's only committed to at least one year at Tennessee if he's signed the NLI, correct?

But, his 5 year clock has started ticking I think.

Does anyone get held to any commitment these days?
