Admiral Schofield has committed to Tennessee.
The 6-foot-5, 210 pound class of 2015 shooting guard from Zion-Benton (Ill.) pledged to the Vols Sunday.
“I have committed to play basketball at the University of Tennessee #GoVols #RockyTop,” Schofield tweeted.
Schofield chose Tennessee over West Virginia, Wofford, Wisconsin Green-Bay, and others.
“You may not see it now, but you will be a very good player someday. Get your body right and put people around you who know what they are talking about. I believe you can be the best player in the state. Always work hard, keep working hard, not only on court but in the classroom and in everything you do,” Schofield told Next Up Recruits about what his father always tells him.
