Third Time is a Charm for TSU


First year mentor Travis Williams made it a point to recruit in-state.

The new Tennessee State mentor is doing just that with his third commitment from a Volunteer state baller as Ryhan Townes (Arlington) will become a Tiger next fall.

Townes, who ran this summer with the surprising Team Thad crew, is a lanky scorer with a deadly lefty jumpshot and the skill level off the bounce to see immediate playing time upon his arrival at the Nashville campus.

TSU, a member of the Ohio Valley Conference, recieved commitments from a pair of Nashville studs last week in Jamonte Davis from Hillsboro and Jamonte Graham from Father Ryan.

Townes becoes the 15th player in the vaunted Class of 2013 to pledge his wares to a D1 school.
