Jarnell Stokes from Southwind high in Memphis, the #11 overall recruit in the country committed to Tennessee last night. Stokes is a 6’8″ 255 lb power forward. Bruce Pearl started Stokes’ recruitment over a year ago, and Cuonzo Martin closed it yesterday. Stokes chose the Vols over, Florida, Kentucky, Arkansas, UConn, and his hometown Tigers. What a great early get for Coach Martin. Now for the best news. Stokes is graduating early, and will play in January for the Vols. This will give him at least a year and a half in orange.
