Vols Lose Commitment From 7’1″ Center


As a result of Cuonzo Martin’s departure from Tennessee, the Vols also lost a commitment from 7’1″ center Kingsley Okoroh.

Okoroh committed to Tennessee on Monday, but announced on Tuesday that he’d be following Martin to California.

This should not come as a surprise at all. Recruits are typically more committed to a coach than they are a school.

Okoroh’s decommitment now leaves the Vols with two available scholarships for this upcoming season.

    Seems like Coach Martin would have at least told this kid to hold off on making his original announcement, unless he wanted to stick it to UT on the way out which is probable. He left a ship that was bare (thanks to his lack of recruiting) and his whole intergrity and strength in difficult situations mantra is out the window as well.
