Four-star combo guard Bishop Boswell is officially visiting Tennessee basketball from Sept. 8 to Sept. 10, 24/7 High School Hoops first reported earlier this week. The visit comes on the weekend Tennessee football hosts Austin Peay at Neyland Stadium.
It’s one of three official visits Boswell has scheduled for this fall including trips to Wake Forest and SEC foe Georgia. Boswell previously took official visits to Missouri and Xavier in June.
The September trip to Knoxville is Boswell’s first of his recruitment, helping make the Vols a serious player in the blue-chip guard’s recruitment. While it is the 6-foot-4 guard’s first visit to Tennessee, he has already unofficially visited both Georgia and Wake Forest.
Boswell ranks as a four-star recruit and the No. 68 player in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The Charlotte native also ranks as the ninth best player in the state of North Carolina and the 11th best combo guard in the country.

Tennessee is still looking for its first commit in the 2024 recruiting class after failing to make the top group for a few targets including Cam Scott and Austin Swartz.
The Vols’ signed three players (two four-stars and one three-star) in their 2023 recruiting class in addition to highly touted combo guard Freddie Dilione who ended up early enrolling in January and redshirting last season.
