Robert Hubbs Sr. said that Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin went above and beyond the call during his recruitment of his son, and that’s why the 6-foot-3 Hubbs committed during an official visit Sunday night.
“Yeah, he committed to Tennessee,” Hubbs Sr. told SNY.tv by phone Monday. “Coach Martin has really done a fine job in the recruiting process. He’s been around to several events. He’s done a lot of little things that caught the eye of people. He sent a handwritten card to my wife on Mother’s Day. He sent the school a card saying thanks for letting me come into the gym and recruit Robert.
“All summer he’s been around in the front row at events recruiting my son and when he wasn’t he sent a text message saying, “I wasn’t able to make the trip but I’ll be back.”
