Tennessee Offers Combo Guard

Tennessee has offered a scholarship to 2011 combo guard Quinton Chievous, according to the Knoxville News Sentinel.

The Vols have signed three 2011 prospects: point guards Chris Jones and Wes Washpun and shooting guard Josh Richardson. Jones is expected to attend a junior college this fall, according to his coach at Memphis (Tenn.) Melrose High School.

That’s one reason UT is interested in Chievous, who’s the son of Missouri’s all-time scoring leader and 1988 first-round NBA draft pick Derrick Chievous.

The decision to attend junior college was confirmed when the Memphis Commercial Appeal spoke to Melrose head coach Jermaine Johnson.

“He can concentrate on getting better mentally and physically,” Johnson said of Jones.

UT coach Cuonzo Martin signed point guard Wes Washpun during the spring signing period partly because of concerns regarding Jones’ ability to qualify this fall.
