Playing alongside three five star prospects on the national champion All-Ohio Red AAU team it can be tough to stand out, but for Aaron Craft he did more than enough during the AAU Nationals and Super Showcase to stand out. With that strong performance numerous scholarship offers came his way and on Wednesday Craft decided to pull the trigger and commit.
The weekend of August 22, Craft and his family made the trip south from Findlay, Ohio to Knoxville, Tennessee to check out the Tennessee campus for the first time. All-Ohio's defensive specialist and glue guy thoroughly enjoyed the trip, and decided Wednesday was the day to issue his commitment to the Volunteers and head coach Bruce Pearl.
"Aaron Craft committed to Tennessee, it is done," said All-Ohio AAU Coach Quentin Rogers via text message to Rivals.com.
Craft's father, John Craft, added, "It is done. Aaron is contacting the other coaches right now from his high school."
Along with his offer from Tennessee, Craft also had offers from the University of Dayton, Miami (OH), Bowling Green, and Toledo. Beyond those schools, Michigan, Butler, and Harvard were showing significant interest in the 6-foot-1 combo guard.
With the commitment, Craft becomes the first player to join Tennessee's 2010 recruiting class.
