Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin scored a huge recruiting victory with the commitment of five-star shooting guard Robert Hubbs on Monday.
Martin might have also taken an option away from Kentucky
According to the Clarksville Leaf Chronicle, Hubbs was scheduled to host UK coaches for an in-home visit later this week.
But after a trip to Tennessee over the weekend, Hubbs picked the Vols and cancelled planned visits with UK, UCLA and Vanderbilt.
Robert Hubbs Sr. told the Leaf Chronicle that when his son informed him of his decision, the father specifically reminded him that he hadn’t met with Kentucky yet.
“Dad, I love Tennessee,” his son replied.
Rivals.com ranks Hubbs as the No. 12 overall player in the class of 2013.
He was only Tennessee’s first commitment of the day. The Vols later added 2013 forward A.J. Davis, the son of former NBA player Antonio Davis.
