November 15, 2018

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Tennessee has added wing Davonte Gaines to its recruiting class.

Volunteers coach Rick Barnes announced the signing of Gaines on Thursday in a university release. One day earlier, Tennessee had announced the signings of five-star guard prospect Josiah-Jordan James and forward Drew Pember.

Gaines, who is 6-foot-7, verbally committed to Tennessee in July 2017. He is from Buffalo, New York, but is spending this year at Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Virginia.

Barnes said in a statement that “what makes him special as a player is his versatility.” Barnes added that Gaines “has excellent size and length and is an excellent passer and playmaker, which will improve our overall skill on the perimeter.”
