UT gets another 6-8 player

First, Bruce Pearl brought three of his assistants with him from Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Now, he's adding one of his UWM signees.

Ryan Childress, a 6-foot-8 forward who was released from his UWM letter of intent when Pearl left for Tennessee, now says he has signed scholarship papers-with the Vols.

Childress, who played high school ball at Cincinnati Moeller, will be eligible for the 2005-06 season.

Earlier this week, Pearl got a commitment from another 6-8 player, Maurice Thomas of Philadelphia.
