  • Pinkston Visiting Tennessee

    Share Zagsblog Share Zagsblog
    JayVaughn Pinkston, the top high school player in New York City in the Class of 2010, is currently visiting Tennessee on an unofficial.

    “The visit’s going real good,” Pinkston said by phone. “I like the campus. It’s a real good place.

    “I went to the academic offices and talked to everybody. I met with the players. I met the football team [which was practicing]. I worked out a little bit and I went to the pool.”

    Tennessee head coach Bruce Pearl and assistant Steve Forbes are clearly interested in Pinkston. They flew up on a private jet last week just to watch Pinkston play at the Summer in the City event at St. John’s.

    The 6-6 Pinkston also visited Villanova on Thursday with New Heights AD Kimani Young.

    “It was good,” Pinkston said of that visit.

    He is also considering St. John’s, Arizona, Miami and Marquette, but said he won’t decide until the spring of 2010.
