Fulkerson picks Vols

THE RIVALS150: 2016 | 2017
Arden (N.C.) Christ School power forward John Fulkerson recently
trimmed his list down to Charlotte, Georgia and
Tennessee, and he hoped to have his decision out of the way early in
November. Mission accomplished.
The three-star prospect in the 2016 class announced on Friday that he would play his college basketball for Rick Barnes and the Vounteers
A native of Tennessee, Fulkerson grew up a fan of the Volunteers. The chance to play for the school he grew up rooting for and for a new coach was simply too much for him to pass up.
"Growing up in Tennessee, I was a Vols fan," Fulkerson told "I think I fit in well
there. Coach [Rick] Barnes is a really good coach."
A mobile forward, Fulkerson can stretch defenses some with his shooting and he's very active on the glass. He passes well out of the high post and has a body that should be easy to build on once he hits a college weight room.
Fulkerson is the third player from the class of 2016 to choose Tennessee. He joins three-star combo guard Jordan Bone and Rivals150 swingman Jalen Johnson as members of the Volunteers early recruiting class.
After careful consideration and prayer, I have decided to commit to The University of Tennessee. #GoVols John Fulkerson (@fulkerson_john) November 6, 2015
