JC All-American Signs with Tennessee
Junior college All-American Bobby Maze has announced that he will sign with Tennessee, where he will be able to play next season. "Stevie Wonder could see this is where I needed to be," Maze said. "They’ve called me 'The Solution' here, so you do the equation: What better place could I be?" The 6-3 guard originally signed with Oklahoma out of high school, but transferred to Hutchinson (Kan.) Community College last year. He visited the Tennessee campus on Tuesday, and immediately knew he wanted to become a Volunteer. "The plane landed and I breathed in that Knoxville air," Maze said. "You see those seats in the arena and how high they go up, and all the sellout crowds, the Jumbotron screens everywhere, the practice facility. You have every tool here to be successful." Maze's addition will help greatly, especially after the recent dismissals of sophomores Duke Crews and Ramar Smith.
