Tennessee basketball coach Rick Barnes earned a new commitment on Tuesday from shooting guard Jordan Bowden. The three-star prospect made his announcement in unique fashion.
Bowden went on Periscope, a social media platform that provides live broadcasting capability, to make his announcement. Pretty soon, the traditional press conference could become obsolete.

The Greenville, S.C., native is ranked as the No. 3 player in the state and the No. 56 shooting guard in the country, according to 247Sports composite rankings. He picked Tennessee over Cincinnati, Marquette, Providence and Utah.
Interestingly enough, the decision was tweeted out by Tee Higgins, a five-star wide receiver recruit in the Class of 2017, who de-committed from the Vols in February. He is rated the No. 1 prospect in the state of Tennessee.
