Yes. This kid could probably play some 2, if needed, but he has the ceiling to be an elite PG.

Happens to come from the same school that produced John Wall as well.

Be nice to have some depth at PG. UT hasn't had 2 quality true PG's on the roster for some time. I actually can't remember the last time. Closest I can remember would have been the one year with Maze and Goins, but I think defining Goins as "quality" would be a stretch. Before that?I honestly don't remember. Might have to go all the way back to the Green era.

Was kind of going over some recruiting, for the class of 2013...

Tennessee is still in good with:

7 top 80 players according to scout ratings
12 top 150 players according to rivals ratings

Fwiw markel Crawford & jajaun Johnson will both most likely be top 150 players once the new ratings come out.

A player I believe that UT should go after is 13' Darryl Baker from Jeffersonville, IN. I have had the pleasure to see him in person plays with calmness never looks pressured or anxious.

This video is from his sophomore year way bigger and stronger now with athleticism to go with it.

Center Moses Kingsley moved to the United States from Nigeria to increase his chances of getting a college education and playing in the NBA.

Along the way, he has experienced a variety of new things and quickly made a name for himself.

Kingsley, 6-9, 210 pounds, who moved to New Albany, Miss., about a year ago, reports about 10 scholarship offers from schools that include Tennessee, Vanderbilt and Florida. He also is drawing interest from Arkansas. He said he has yet to visit Fayetteville, but he is still interested in the Hogs.

Kingsley played basketball for the Arkansas Wings during the spring and summer. Wings Coach Ron Crawford said he believes with increased strength and additional weight, Kingsley has the potential to be a Top 25 prospect nationally in the class of 2013.

“His improvement this past year has been phenomenal,” Crawford said. “He was a shot blocker but has developed a powerful offensive game. His midrange game along with the drop-step makes him a real threat.”

Kingsley said he’s still making adjustments to a sixhour time difference and the weather in the United States. In December, he woke up on Christmas morning to his first snow.

“I walked outside and everything was white,” said Kingsley, whose father is an evangelist. “My jaw dropped. I was looking everywhere and it was white. The buildings, the trees, everything was covered with snow. I had to take a picture.”

Kingsley is a good student and plans to major in technology or engineering. He said he is paying attention to a school’s academic program as well as its coach.

“That will be my plan B if I don’t make it in basketball,” said Kingsley, who plans to major in technology or engineering. “Secondly, it will be the relationship with the coaching staff.”

Harvard and Tennessee. Jeez. Just sounds so odd. Sounds like he has a really clear choice of direction, though.

Now I'm assuming he's already gone through the process, but food this interesting. He was saying harvard doesn't offer athletic scholarships, and that he has to take his sat's and see if he can get an academic scholarship.

Kid obviously is ridiculously smart, but maybe hell miss he academic scholarship by a point or two. Process of elimination makes Tennessee his choice haha.

Best of luck to foster though, obviously a great kid.
