The headline is about offering the top prospect of 2013. But to me, the real news is that Tennessee is no longer an option for 6-9 forward Lekan Akayi. We are badly in need of a post player for next year, and he seemed the most likely.
Now, the long shot might be Joseph Uchebo . He's a 4-star center from Raleigh and was just released from his letter of intent to NC State after Sidney Lowe was fired. The only reason I speculate that Tennessee has a shot with him is because his high school teammate Bishop Daniels is getting a release from Miami after their coaching change and will be considering Tennessee and Rutgers. Could they both decide to play at Tennessee?
