The Tennessee basketball program picked up another 2021 commitment on Wednesday, as French guard Quentin Diboundje has committed to Tennessee.
The 6’6, 188 pound SG from Monpellier, France, has been playing for Monteverde Academy in Montverde, Florida. He has not been involved in camps or showcase events, which is why he isn’t ranked by any of the recruiting sites.
He joins an already stacked 2021 class, with Kennedy Chandler and Jahmai Mashack, who have both already signed with the Vols. The solid connections that Tennessee has built up within European basketball community definitely helped the Vols land the shooting guard.
Tennessee assistant coach Mike Schwartz, who helped land Yves Pons, has been involved in the recruitment of Diboundje. The French connection has paid off for the Vols in the past and the Tennessee coaching staff is hoping this will do the same.
Thank you again to my mentor and to everybody around me that has helped me make my dream come true.

The graduate student spent time playing for France’s LNB Pro-A league, where averaged 11.7 points per game and 5 rebounds. This will only help the Vols, as they looked to add more shooters.
The Vols will continue to scour the transfer portal, in hopes of finding a post presence. Tennessee landed the commitment of Auburn transfer Justin Powell last week, who could be a immediate help from behind the perimeter.
