Tennessee picks up late-blooming guard

For the second time in 2013, Darius Thompson has committed to a SEC program in the state of Tennessee.
After initially committing to Vanderbilt, the late blooming 6-foot-4 point guard from Murfreesboro (Tenn.) Blackman has now committed to rival Tennessee.
Saturday night, multiple sources confirmed that the three-star senior, who backed off of his pledge to the Commodores a few weeks ago, is now headed to Knoxville.
The news was confirmed by Thompson himself via text message to
A bit of an unknown coming out of the summer despite a strong run with Team Nashville, Thompson managed to fly under the radar until his senior year.
As a senior, schools began to fall in love with Thompson's size, feel for the game and ability to score and pass from the point guard situation.
Moving forward, he will need to add strength in order to play in the SEC. However, he is an SEC level athlete with some versatility to his game and should develop into a quality player for the Volunteers.
Tennessee now holds commitments from Thompson, five-star shooting guard Robert Hubbs, three-star power forward A.J. Davis and three-star point guard Travon Landry.
