    Tennessee missed out on a chance to bring in a pure point guard in the 2019 class, though they did add five-star Josiah Jordan-James who projects to be one of the Vols’ main ball handlers this upcoming season. Regardless, point guard is a big area of focus for UT in their 2020 and 2021 classes, and Caleb Love looks to be Tennessee’s top choice in the 2020 cycle.

    With the addition of Kim English to UT’s staff, Tennessee has gotten in with several new targets. One of those was Love, who is one of the top point guards in the 2020 class. The Vols are supposed to be getting an official visit from him at some point, and they’ve been in to see him play as well.

    Jayden Stone is probably more of a combo guard, but he seems to be trending away from Tennessee a little as of late. Still, the Vols’ staff still keeps in contact with him, and there’s a good chance they end up getting a visit from him.

    Another name to keep in mind at point guard is 2021 PG Cam Hayes. There’s a chance the Greensboro, NC guard reclassifies to the 2020 class, and Tennessee is a team thought to be deeply in contention for him if he does so.
