Catching up on Commitments

Catching up on commitment from around the state is a full time gig in itself.

Here is what we have come up with. If you know of others please let me know at andre@tnprehoops.com




In Middle Tennessee, Jacob Williams (Wilson Central) has decided to take his game across town and play for venerable coach Sam Harris and Trevecca-Nazarene. Coach Harris is in his 21st season at the helm of the Great Midwest Athletic Conference member. Trevecca plays in NCAA DII.

Clay Hertel (DCA) parlayed an outstanding senior season into a heated recruiting process but in the end Berry College will get the services of the talented shooting guard. Hertel, a Mr. Basketball finalist, will join the Vikings who toil in the Southern Athletic Association Conference of DIII. The Vikings are coached by Jeff Rogers.

Bryan College adds their 150th recruit from the 2014 class with the addition of Reagan Johnson (Mt. Juliet). The Lions and coach Don Rekoske's class has been dubbed "The Dirty Dozen" so please just add one more to that formula.

The Tigers of Sewanee reach into Nashville and grab a potential all-conference player in Jacob McCullough (Hendersonville). Coach Bubba Smith is at the helm of the Southern Athletic Association Conference school.
