Monday was a productive recruiting day for the Tennessee basketball team.
It started with the commitment of five-star shooting guard Robert Hubbs from Dyer County High School in Newbern, Tenn. Then came the pledge Monday evening from forward A.J. Davis of Buford (Ga.) High School. He announced his commitment via Twitter.
Davis, the son of 13-year NBA veteran Antonio Davis, became Tennessee’s third commitment for the 2013 class. Point guard Travon Landry from Huntington (W.V.) Prep was the first prospect to commit to the Vols for 2013.
Hubbs and his family cited Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin as a key factor in the decision to choose Tennessee. Martin played a similar role in the recruitment of Davis, who also considered Clemson.
“That definitely was one of the main reasons why I committed,” Davis told Scout.com. “My relationship with Coach Martin and coach (Tracy) Webster, I talk to those guys a lot. He’ll help me on the court and off the court. I just feel like it was the best place for me.”
