Looking ahead to 2021, it doesn’t seem like the Vols are going to change the approach that has landed them three five stars in the past two seasons with the possibility of adding a fourth. Tennessee is trying to get involved with Seattle big man Paolo Banchero, the No. 4 prospect in 2021. There’s also a possibility that Banchero could reclassify into 2020. That’s going to be a tough pull with Kentucky and Duke, among others making him a priority, but simply the fact that Tennessee can now get its foot in the door in a recruitment like that speaks volumes about the program’s rise.
One new name to keep in mind for 2021 is IMG Academy power forward Brandon Huntley. He’s currently a member of the 2022 class but there’s already talk that he’ll reclassify into 2021. Tennessee is on this one hard early on in the process.
Sorry, just now getting to answer your question, but yeah, as you've seen, he's a Keon Johnson-Corey Walker-Jaden Springer level talent. Definitely top-50, and probably higher. It is still early, but his talent is evident. With assumed growth in that talent, he should maintain his position as one of the best in his class.
