It has been a big day for Tennessee hoops, and the team hasn’t tipped off in tonight’s matchup against UNC Asheville.  The Vols received a LOI from Trae Golden, a four star guard who has been committed to the Vols for some time.  Golden is one of many Georgia products to commit to the Volunteers in the past few years.  Vol fans have also been anxiously awaiting a decision from two New York recruits, Jayvaughn Pinkston and Tobias Harris.  Pinkston, a four star prospect, is scheduled to sign with a school and make his announcement tomorrow, and Harris, a five star, will sign tomorrow and announce on Thursday.  The ink is not on the paper yet, but sources have leaked that Pinkston, known as the “King of New York,” will sign with the Vols tomorrow, ending part one of the suspenseful week for the Volunteer faithful.  Pinkston’s decision was fairly predictable due to a late unofficial visit to Tennessee in October. The Empire State’s top recruit, Tobais Harris, is a different story.  I’ve never seen a recruitment as unpredictable as his.  I could honestly see him going to any of his schools of interest, Syracuse, West Virginia, Georgia Tech, Louisville, Kentucky, Maryland, and Tennessee.  The experts report that he is a Syracuse and Tennessee lean, but the Harris camp has kept very quiet.  Nonetheless, if the Vols land Harris, the 2011 recruiting class could be Tennessee’s best class ever.
