Former Southern Miss men’s basketball signee Willie Carmichael will join Donnie Tyndall at Tennessee.

Carmichael, a 6-foot-8, 195-pound senior forward at Wekiva High School (Apopka, Fla.) announced the news Tuesday evening at his high school basketball banquet in Florida.

Carmichael, who was released from his National Letter of Intent at Southern Miss, has already signed scholarship papers with the Vols. He said he picked UT over Florida Atlantic, Florida Gulf Coast and Alabama.

Carmichael was named Florida’s 7A player of the year by the Orlando Sentinel this season. He can begin his four years of eligibility immediately.
