Four-star power forward Pharaoh Compton plans on officially visiting Tennessee basketball from Sept. 8-10, 24/7 High School Sports Hoops first reported Monday afternoon.
The trip to Knoxville is one of three planned fall official visits for Compton. The 6-foot-6, 215 pound power forward also plans on officially visiting San Diego State in August and LSU in October.
The Chandler, Arizona native has also taken an unofficial visit to the University of Nevada- Las Vegas and an official visit to Houston.
Compton is considering a number of schools but Tennessee is the furthest one away from his Arizona home. The low four-star is considering a couple of southwest schools and a couple of southeast school with Tennessee being the furthest east.
Compton ranks as a four-star recruit and the No. 110 player in the country and No. 7 player in Arizona according to the 247sports composite rankings. On3 is higher on Compton, ranking him as the No. 79 player and No. 11 power forward in the country.
Tennessee basketball is still looking for its first commitment in its 2024 recruiting class. The Vols are hosting four-star combo guard Bishop Boswell for an official visit the same weekend as Compton as they re-examine their recruiting board headed into the fall.
The Vols have three seniors on the current roster— Santiago Vescovi, Josiah-Jordan James and Dalton Knecht— giving the Vols at least three scholarships available ahead of the 2024-25 season.
Freddie Dilione is an underclassmen NBA Draft candidate and transfers have become a mainstay in college basketball so the Vols will likely have more than three new scholarships available. They can use that them on both prep prospects and transfers.
