Tennessee basketball signs two, waiting on two more
Tennessee has two basketball players signed and is waiting on two others.
The Vols received signed letters of intent from 6-foot-2 point guard Jordan Bone and 6-6 forward Jalen Johnson on Wednesday.
Bone is from Ensworth School (Nashville, Tenn.). Johnson is from Wesleyan Christian (High Point, N.C.).
“We feel great about what each of these guys brings to our program,” Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said. “One key thing is they are both winners—they’ve both won state championships. Just knowing what it takes to win is really valuable.
“Jordan is a true point guard who really has a feel for how to play the position. He’s an excellent passer, and he’s got exceptional speed and quickness.
“With Jalen, his athleticism and ability to make shots really stands out. He is going to bring tremendous size and length to our backcourt.

The Vols are expecting a signed national letter of intent from John Fulkerson. The 6-8, 195-pound forward from Christ School (Kingsport, Tenn.) committed to Tennessee last week.
And Tennessee is still waiting on a final decision from 6-7 forward Grant Williams from Providence Day School (Charlotte, N.C.). He is scheduled to announce his decision between the Vols, Princeton and Yale on Friday.
