Negedu Commits to Tennessee
Top-50 prospect Emmanuel Negedu's recruiting saga has come to a close. The former Arizona signee has announced his commitment to Tennessee. "Tennessee was one of the schools I considered before I [signed with] Arizona [last November], and when I visited there I liked the campus and I really got along with the players," Negedu told Gary Parrish of CBSSports.com. "It just seemed like a family. I love it. And I feel like I've known the coaches forever." The 6-7 forward chose the Volunteers over Indiana, Memphis and Georgia Tech. Negedu asked for a release from his letter of intent from Arizona last month as a result of all the changes on the Wildcats' coaching staff. He is ranked as the No. 40 recruit in the country by Rivals.com.
