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

Tennessee basketball

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.

James chose the Vols over a final four that also included Duke, Michigan State (where his father played) and his home-state Clemson, the latter of which was expected by many to be his destination. 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.

Acoustic tags attached to the sharks led scientists to what they call the "Red Triangle" off Monterey between August and December. Female sharks, on the other hand, were tracked diving to deeper water during the day and rising to shallower water by night.

This is an absolutely huge get for Rick Barnes and staff. James was at the top of the Volunteers board for years and will be yet another versatile point guard for Tennessee. It's not that they haven't had great players in the past.

He is the third-highest-rated commitment of all-time at Tennessee, per the 247Sports rating of all-time recruits. Only Tobias Harris and Scotty Hopson were ranked higher. The Vols have an open scholarship remaining this season.
