KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - Tennessee basketball added some depth to its frontcourt Thursday afternoon with the commitment from five-star forward Julian Phillips.

Phillips - a South Carolina native - had signed to play for Will Wade and LSU in November. He was released from his letter of intent after Wade’s firing in March.

Phillips joins Knoxville Catholic product B.J. Edwards in this year’s recruiting class. He becomes Rick Barnes’ sixth five-star recruit to commit to Tennessee in the last four years. Rivals.com rates Phillips as the No. 13 overall player in the Class of 2022.

The 6′7″ forward chose Tennessee over Auburn and the G League Ignite.
