Several unofficial basketball visitors found this out this past weekend as over 10-14 prospects took in the Volunteer's season opening football game against Western Kentucky.

One Tennessee High School prospect that was on the Knoxville campus was Memphis White Station shooting guard Andre Hollins.

InsideTennessee.com caught up with Hollins Tuesday night to get his thoughts of the Tennessee Basketball program.

"I love it up there," Hollins said. "It was a very good football game. I love how crazy the fans are. I loved the atmosphere."

Hollins, a 6-foot-2 and 189-pound athlete, averaged 16 points for his White Station team last fall as a sophomore. The rising junior is excited about the recruiting process.

"Right now Ole Miss, Memphis, Tennessee, Harvard, Virginia Tech, Oregon State and Arkansas are all recruiting me pretty hard," Hollins said. "I would have to say Tennessee and Memphis are high on my list."

Hollins was also impressed with the Tennessee campus.

"It's a great place and a great campus," Hollins said. "There were a lot of great athletes at the ballgame Saturday. I would say at least 10-12 other unofficial visitors. Tennessee seems close to offering. I like Coach Bruce Pearl a lot; he is doing great things at Tennessee."

Hollins is a three star prospect rated by Scout.com and is rated as the No. 20 shooting guard in the country.
