Five-star class of 2025 guard Aaron Rowe is officially visiting Tennessee basketball on Sept. 29, On3’s Joe Tipton first reported Thursday evening.
Rowe is one of the top players in the 2025 recruiting cycle, ranking as a five-star and the No. 18 player in the country according to the 247sports composite rankings. The 6-foot, 150-pound prospect also ranks as the No. 4 point guard in the class and the No. 2 player in the state of Missouri.
Rowe is a Columbia, Missouri native but plays his prep basketball at Link Academy in Branson, Missouri. Tennessee has recruited Link Academy hard and relatively effective in recent years due in large part to assistant coach Rod Clark.
The Vols landed four-star Cameron Carr and three-star Cade Phillips from Link Academy in their 2023 recruiting class though Phillips committed to Tennessee before transferring to Link Academy.
Rowe is still in the early stages of his recruitment and his scheduled official visit to Tennessee would currently be just his second recruiting visit. The blue-chip unofficially visited Missouri last fall for his first recruiting visit.
The blue-chip recruit currently holds nine scholarship offers including Auburn, Kansas, Tennessee and Texas.
Tennessee is still looking for its first commitment in both the 2024 and 2025 recruiting classes. Rick Barnes and his staff missed on some of its top targets in the 2024 cycle earlier this summer and are currently laying the groundwork for their top targets in 2025.
Tennessee basketball enters the 2023-24 season with high expectations. Coming off a run to the Sweet 16 a season ago, the Vols added transfers Jordan Gainey and Dalton Knecht to a roster which includes returning starters Zakai Zeigler, Santiago Vescovi and Josiah-Jordan James.
