    Tennessee basketball offered instate guard Chandler Jackson Sunday, Stockrisers’ Jake Weingarten reported.

    Jackson, a Memphis, Tennessee native, holds offers from Virginia Tech, Alabama, Kansas, Memphis, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Auburn, Florida State, Missouri and TCU according to 247sports.

    The 6-foot-4 combo guard ranks as the 117th best player in the nation and the third best player in the state of Tennessee according to the 247sports composite rankings. 247sports own rankings are higher on Jackson, ranking him as the nation’s 56th best player.

    The four-star recruit plays his prep basketball at Christian Brothers High School and is coming off his first visit of the fall— using an official visit to see Virginia Tech.

    Tennessee currently has just one commit in the 2022 recruiting class, earning a commitment from Knoxville guard B.J. Edwards.

    Rick Barnes and his staff are also in the thick of Cason Wallace’s recruitment. Wallace, a unanimous five-star, is one of the best combo guards in the 2022 class and will make his college decision on Nov. 7. The Texas native released a top four of Kentucky, Tennessee, Texas and UTSA earlier this month but this one is believed to be a Kentucky and Tennessee battle.

    Tennessee hosted five-star forward Julian Phillips on a visit this past weekend as the Vols look to continue their hot recruiting streak.

    Barnes has provided Tennessee its best run of basketball recruiting in the modern era. Tennessee has recorded back-to-back top five recruiting classes and has inked five five-star recruits in the past three cycles.

    Ryan Schumpert is a senior at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville who has covered University of Tennessee athletics since the moment he stepped on campus. He just completed a three-year stint with the Daily Beacon, the last two of which as the Sports Editor. Ryan also spent last three years at Volquest providing strong Tennessee baseball coverage of Tony Vitello's resurgent program. While the bulk of Ryan's responsibilities involved beat coverage and writing, he also recorded podcasts for both the Beacon and Volquest. Did we leave out the part about Ryan interning for the Smokies? Ryan's work ethic, versatility, and strong writing skills are but three of the reasons why Vol Nation will be hearing from Ryan for years to come.
