Selby Goes With SEC Program

Josh Selby is off the board. The highly touted point guard committed to a SEC program while on an unofficial visit.

Josh Selby was looking for a place that felt like home. The Hyattsville (Md.) Dematha product found that in Tennessee, and he gave Bruce Pearl and his staff a verbal commitment Saturday evening.

"It felt like home," the five-star prospect said. "It felt like another home. My mother liked it, my uncle liked it and I loved it. The crowd at the game was crazy. I loved it down here."

Selby, who is rated No. 10 overall by Scout.com, said there were a number of factors that went into his recruitment, but among the deciding ones, was the relationship he built with one of the Tennessee coaches.

"I called coach [Steve] Forbes a lot," Selby said. "He's a real cool guy. I called him a lot and I built a real good relationship with him. We just bonded."

Tennessee's 2010 recruiting class got a lot better this weekend, as Selby and Jordan McRae both made commitments following Tennessee's football game with Florida. The two join Aaron Craft, who committed to UT last month.

Selby is ranked as the 2nd best point guard in the 2010 class.
