Marta Suárez Rodriguez, a 6-foot-2 forward from Spain who can also play guard, committed to the Lady Vols on Thursday afternoon. Rodriguez, according to 247Sports, picked Tennessee over Duke, UCLA, and Washington among others.

Suárez Rodriguez announced her decision on social media, saying, “I’m really excited to announce my commitment to the University of Tennessee! GO LADY VOLS.”

“I’m really thankful for all the schools that took the time to get to know me, it’s been a really hard decision,” Suárez Rodriguez continued. “I would like to thank my teammates and coaches who made this possible, but most importantly my best friends for supporting me throughout the process.”

After the season, guards Zaay Green and Jazmine Massengill announced their intentions to transfer off the Lady Vols’ roster. Kentucky announced the addition of Massengill as a transfer on Wednesday. Green had committed to Texas A&M, but nothing official has been announced there.

UT also lost post players Lou Brown and Kamera Harris to graduation at the conclusion of the season.

Suárez Rodriguez is the third addition to the 2020 recruiting class for Harper. The Lady Vols also signed four-star guard Destiny Salary out of Arkansas and local four-star forward Tess Darby in Tennessee. Salary and Darby signed with UT in November.

Harper also added her first graduate transfer this offseason with the addition of Liberty transfer Keyen Green. The 6-foot-1 forward/center, brings immediate help to a Tennessee post that desperately needs it, as will the addition of Suárez Rodriguez, who can run point, play on the wing, or play in the post.

Tennessee is coming off of a 21-10 season and 10-6 conference record in Harper’s first season as head coach. The Lady Vols were likely set to make the NCAA Tournament before the remainder of the season was canceled due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
