    The Tennessee Basketball program picked up a commitment from a versatile combo guard on Tuesday.

    Cameron Carr, a guard from the class of 2023, announced his commitment through a Twitter post.

    “Blessed to be here,” Carr said in his tweet. “#Committed #GoVols”

    The talented guard currently plays his high school ball for Link Academy in Branson, Missouri. Carr’s teammate at Link Academy, three-star power forward Cade Phillips, committed to Tennessee back in May.

    Cameron Carr saw his stock quickly rise after a productive summer with Kansas City’s MOKAN Elite 17U team.

    Carr ranks as a four-star prospect according to 247Sports but is a three-star recruit according to 247’s composite rankings. 247 has Carr as the No. 87 player nationally, the No. 17 combo guard in the class, and the No. 3 player from the state of Missouri.

    Standing at 6-foot-4, 160-pounds, Carr is long, nimble, and athletic. Carr has a smooth shot from outside and can use his length to his advantage in the mid-range game.

    Carr’s family members are no strangers to high-level basketball, either. Cameron’s father, Chris Carr, was a former shooting guard for Southern Illinois and played for six NBA teams during his six-year professional career. Carr’s sister, Chrissy Carr, is a senior guard for the Arkansas Razorbacks.

    Cameron Carr is now the fourth commit to Rick Barnes and Tennessee’s class of 2023. While the class boasts two four-star players and two three-star players, all of Tennessee’s commits are above a 0.91 rating according to 247.

    In addition to Carr and Cade Phillips, Tennessee also has a commitment from four-star combo guard Freddie Dilione, who has been terrific on the high school/travel circuits this year. The Vols also have a commitment from four-star and 6-foot-11 center JP Estrella.
