Tennessee basketball recruiting: 5-star Josiah James commits to Vols

Five-star guard Josiah James surprisingly picks Tennessee giving Rick Barnes his biggest recruiting win

Tennessee landed its third Class of 2019 commitment Wednesday morning in Josiah James of Porter-Gaud (Charleston), one of the highest-rated hardwood recruits SC has ever produced.

Days before the visit, UT announced a contract extension for Barnes to make him one of the nation's highest-paid coaches.

James is the third commit for Tennessee in the 2019 class. The No. 14 recruit in the 2019 class visited Knoxville earlier this month and was at Clemson for an official visit last weekend.
