Things didn't go that well on the football field Saturday for the University of Tennessee, but the basketball program had a productive day. Both five-star prospect Josh Selby and four-star prospect Jordan McRae committed to the Volunteers on their unofficial visits.
Selby, a 6-foot-1, 180-pound combo guard from Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha High School has found a second home in Knoxville.
"It just feels like home here," said Selby. "It's a great family environment with the team and the school. The coaches and players are cool, and the style of play fits me perfect."
Selby, the No. 7 ranked prospect in the class of 2010, is an electric scorer who is comfortable at both guard positions.
McRae, a 6-foot-4, 160-pound shooting guard from Midway (Ga.) Liberty County, is also a big time scorer who is looking forward to playing for Coach Pearl with his up tempo style of play.
"I really like Coach Pearl," said McRae. "I also like a full court game better than a half court game.
"I knew there was a possibility I'd commit on the visit. My parents came with me on the visit and are now on board with me."
McRae is the No. 28 ranked prospect in the class of 2010.
He and Selby join another guard Aaron Craft as 2010 Tennessee commitments.
