The biggest piece of the offseason puzzle for Rick Barnes and Tennessee is now in place. The Volunteers picked up a commitment from Brandon Huntley-Hatfield today, adding a five-star piece to the frontcourt for the first time in the Barnes era.
The top 2022 prospect will reclassify into the class of 2021, meaning he will be on the floor for Tennessee next season.
Huntley-Hatfield is the fifth five-star prospect to sign with Tennessee under Barnes. He’s set to join five-star point guard Kennedy Chandler this season in Knoxville, forming yet another talented roster with plenty of NBA potential. Huntley-Hatfield joins four-star center Jonas Aidoo in the frontcourt, who committed to Tennessee on Wednesday.
