Tennessee Basketball Recruiting: Vols Make Three New Offers Over the Weekend

Barnes is getting a jump on the 2019 group.

Tennessee has extended three scholarship offers over the weekend. The first being four star power forward Armando Bacot. Bacot is 6-9, 225 and is being pursued by Duke, North Carolina and Maryland among a host of others.

Rick Barnes also gave an offer to Trendon Watford, a five star small forward. Watford is a top ranked ranked player in the 2019 class. The 6-8 wing comes out of Birmingham.

Last but not least, Tennessee offered 2019 6-11 big man Jason Jitoboh. Jitoboh is currently unranked coming out of the Chattanooga area.

Tennessee has now offered seven five star prospects out of the 2019 class, per 247 sports. Rick Barnes is aiming big here. All three of these newly offered prospects have plenty of size, each hitting 6-8 or above. The Vols likely won’t have much room in the 2018 class, but things should open up for the 2019 class — which is why you see Barnes hitting this class so hard right now.
