Wright State v Tennessee

Despite intense speculation that Josiah James was a lock for Clemson, the Tigers lost out for the second straight year on a major instate prospect as Josiah James has picked Tennessee.

Last year of course Duke came on late and poached Zion Williamson.

Tough break for the Tigers and of course for Duke, but it became clear over the last few days that James was not going to be a Blue Devil.

Best of luck to him in Knoxville.
