The Tennessee Volunteer basketball team has landed Jaden Springer, No. 16 overall in his class and the No. 4 shooting guard in 2020 class in the state of Florida.

“Tennessee has been on me the longest and I know that I’m a priority for them, which is attractive,” Springer said in an interview with 247sports last month. “I feel like it would be a great situation for me to come right in and make a big impact.”

Springer had offers from powerhouses like Kentucky and North Carolina but decided to commit to Tennessee on Wednesday.

The 6-foot-5, 210 pounds Springer is a five-star recruit from IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fl.

“As soon as I got there it was like a family atmosphere,” Springer said in an interview, “all the players get along, the fans love their teams and support them to the fullest. It’s a good place to be.”

The Vol men’s basketball team had a successful 2018-2019 season, and the Tennessee program was the top team in the country for a while.

The UT program is headed in the right direction, and it seems the addition of Springer can only help the Vols on their way.
