They say that two is better than one.
On Monday, that saying became a reality for Tennessee and head coach Cuonzo Martin.
Martin landed his most prized recruit to date on Monday morning as 6-foot-5 shooting guard Robert Hubbs pledged his verbal decision. Later on in the day, UT scored again, landing 6-foot-8 forward A.J. Davis.
With the two additions, the Vols have one scholarship remaining for their 2013 recruiting class, which now stands at three total. Travon Landry, who currently attends Huntington Prep (W.V.), was the first to commit to Tennessee, doing so last December.
Widely considered among the nation’s top prospects, Hubbs will be the jewel of Tennessee’s 2013 recruiting class, but the addition of Davis is also a big pick-up for the Vols and a sweet icing to the cake on Monday evening.
Davis’ father, Antonio, is a former NBA player, so A.J. comes from a basketball family and his long, athletic frame gives the ability to play both forward positions. Davis will head to Tennessee by way of Buford H.S. (Ga.) and can now prepare for his senior season with a commitment and decision out of the way.
The combo forward visited Tennessee just two weeks ago, spending the weekend on the UT campus and also attending the school’s home football opener against Georgia State. Prior to Monday’s commitments, Hubbs had also recently visited Knoxville, committing after a trip of his very own.
Prior to his decision, Davis had also been receiving attention from other high-major programs. According to Rivals, Davis also held scholarship offers from Auburn, Clemson, Georgia, Georgia Tech, UTEP and the College of Charleston.
