Tennessee and others set to welcome key recruits

The NCAA evaluation weekend is upon us, and elite prep players will be showing off their games in front of college coaches at events across the country this Friday-Sunday. As a result, most schools have opted not to use this weekend as a chance to get seniors on campus for official visits and instead use the time to get a jump on evaluating the top underclass prospects on their lists.

Tennessee, however, has bucked the system.

This year, the fall evaluation weekend represents a major recruiting weekend for the SEC school. Instead of evaluations, Tennessee will be all about on-campus visits. The list of players headed to Rocky Top this weekend includes all of their current class of 2012 commitments -- Bashaara Graves of Clarksville, Tenn., the No. 5-ranked player in the 2012 class by ESPN HoopGurlz; No. 20 Andraya Carter of Flowery Branch, Ga. and No. 39 Jasmine Jones of Madison, Ala. Joining them will be Rachel Hollivay of Columbus, Miss., the No. 8 player in the 2012 class who will be on her official visit; and Diamond DeShields of Norcross, Ga., the No. 3 player in the 2013 class who will be visiting unofficially.
