KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Tennessee has signed forward Julian Phillips, the fourth high school All-American and seventh five-star prospect to join the Volunteers under men's basketball coach Rick Barnes.

The 6-foot-8, 200-pound Phillips is ranked among the top 18 overall prospects nationally by two recruiting services. The South Carolina native helped Link Academy in Branson, Missouri, go 33-2. Phillips had nine points, three assists, two rebounds and a steal in the McDonald's All-American contest.

Phillips joins incoming guard B.J. Edwards as the Volunteers' prep commitments in this year's class along with graduate transfer guard Tyreke Key from Indiana State.
