The 6-3 point guard earned All-State honors at Starkville, Miss., High last season after averaging 23 points, seven assists and five rebounds per game.
He transferred to Central Park Christian in Birmingham earlier this year, but withdrew from that private school on Friday and is transferring again. This time he is moving to Mt. Zion Christian Academy in North Carolina.
"Right now it looks like Jarvis is going to sign with Auburn," said Vincent Hill, who has been advising his brother throughout the recruiting process.
Auburn has a verbal commitment from another former University of Tennessee commitment, 6-9, 245 center Joey Cameron of Leeds, Ala., High School. The Tigers and the Vols are battling for 6-8 forward Josh Dollard of Prince Avenue Prep in Pickens, S.C., who has taken an official visit to Auburn and is expected to visit Tennessee this weekend.
The Tigers are also in the mix for one of the top recruits in the South, 6-7 1/2 forward Korvotney Barber from Manchester, Ga., High. He has visited Auburn and was scheduled to be at Kentucky this past weekend, but cancelled that trip. He has also been recruited by Georgia Tech, Georgia, FSU and others.
Barber, Cameron, Dollard and Hill are the four players who have taken official visits this fall to check out Coach Jeff Lebo's Tigers, who began practice at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday with a Midnight Mayhem session.
