While this offseason was an overall bummer for Tennessee basketball fans, the class of 2020 is still shaping up to be one of the best that the Vols have ever pulled. Already anchored by five-star wing Corey Walker, Tennessee remains the favorite for in-star four-star guard Keon Johnson.
On Friday night, they landed in the ‘final five’ for four-star power forward P.J. Hall. Georgia Tech, Clemson, Florida and Virginia Tech each made the cut with Tennessee.
The 6-9, 220 pound power forward is the 65th overall player in the 2020 class, according to the 247 Sports Composite. He’s out of Roebuck, South Carolina and is the 9th rated power forward prospect in the the class.
Hall took an unofficial visit to Tennessee in January, taking in the West Virginia matchup.
Tennessee also landed in the top five for five-star guard Jaden Springer a few weeks back. Springer is the 12th ranked prospect in the 2020 class.
The Vols currently have one open scholarship following the transfer of D.J. Burns to Winthrop. They will see Lamonte Turner and Jordan Bowden exit the program after this season, potentially freeing up to three scholarship spots. As we’ve seen this year, however, the scholarship situation can change quickly.
