KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee has signed Kennedy Chandler, a five-star prospect who’s the nation’s top-rated point guard for 2021.
Chandler signed Saturday and is expected to enroll next summer. Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said Kennedy was one of the Vols’ top targets for a long time because of his elite speed, athleticism, defense and basketball IQ.
The Memphis native is rated the No. 12 senior in the country, making him the third-highest rated prospect to sign with the Volunteers dating back 2007 when ESPN started its recruiting database.
He’s the third five-star prospect to sign with the Vols in three years.
