Vols Basketball: Willie Carmichael Commits To Tennessee


Willie Carmichael, a 6’7″/195 lb three-star power forward from Apopka, FL (Wekiva), committed to play basketball at Tennessee on Tuesday evening.

Carmichael, who previously committed to Donnie Tyndall at Southern Mississippi, is the third player that Tennessee added on Tuesday, joining Ian Chiles and Devon Baulkman.

The three-star forward chose Tennessee over Alabama, Florida Atlantic and Florida Gulf Coast.

Here’s a clip of Carmichael tipping in a game winning shot for his high school.

That clip doesn’t really tell us much about Carmichael as a player, but it is pretty clear that he is definitely an impressive athlete.

The Vols now have a much better outlook than they did a month ago when they were trying to figure out how to replace Jordan McRae and Jarnell Stokes. They still haven’t replaced those guys, but they are definitely an improved team.

    They are definately a better team now than they were. I believe they are better now, than before martin left and definately better than when the recruits and 2 current players left after martin bolted for california. True, Stokes, Maymon and McRae will be missed, but a new brand of basketball is about to be unleashed on the SEC called Donnie Basketball!
