A.J. Davis grew up in the bright lights of big cities, bigger arenas and some of the biggest of basketball superstars.

For the Tennessee freshman, though, the childhood many kids dream of having was his normal way of life.

Being the son of 13-year NBA veteran forward Antonio Davis had its perks, but A.J., who signed with the Volunteers last fall and moved to Knoxville earlier this month, doesn’t like to talk about his upbringing.

Former Maryland running back Justus Pickett announced via twitter that he plans to transfer to Tennessee. Unless somehow the Junior running back is granted a waiver to play by the NCAA, he will likely sit out next season and compete for playing time in 2014.

The move may come as a surprise to Tennessee fans. With the 2013 and 2014 classes included, Pickett will likely compete with five other running backs, including then-Senior Marlin Lane and top prospect Jalen Hurd.
