Josh Selby, the No. 2 point guard in the Class of 2010 out of Baltimore (Md.) Lake Clifton, has decommitted from Tennessee.
“I … just decommitted from Tennessee,” Selby announced on his Facebook page. The quote was first reported by Gary Parrish of CBS Sports.com.
Reached by phone, Will Barton, a Memphis commit who is Selby’s cousin, added: “I haven’t found any information on that. I don’t know.”
The cell phone number Barton gave me for Selby doesn’t work and Parrish reports that Selby has changed his cell.
Tennessee coach Bruce Pearl is in Israel coaching an American team in the Maccabiah Games.
Before committing, Selby had reportedly scheduled visits to Florida, Virginia Tech and Memphis. Jeff Goodman of FoxSports.com cites a source indicating Kentucky is now the favorite for Selby’s services.
As for Barton, he heads to Florida Thursday for the Super Showcase.
He said he will participate in the Nike Global Games Aug. 7-9 in Portland, Ore. and has been invited to the Boost Mobile Elite 24 event in New York City Aug. 22.
He will play for Brewster (N.H.) coach Jason Smith next year.
