Class of 2012 boys basketball prospect Ryan Rosburg is expected to be in Neyland Stadium today while on an official visit.

Rosburg is a 6-foot-9, 240-pound center from Marquette High School in Chesterfield, Mo., near St. Louis.

Rosburg, who Rivals.com rates as a three-star prospect, has offers from Missouri, Missouri State, Virginia and Virginia Tech in addition to Tennessee.

The Vols could sign as many as four players in the upcoming recruiting class, with the emphasis expected to be on size and length.

UT received its first verbal commitment in the Class of 2012 on Tuesday night when versatile 6-foot-8 Floridian Derek Reese pledged to sign with the Vols.

Reese, a small forward from Olympia High School in Orlando, Fla., also was being recruited by Boston College, Wake Forest and Ole Miss, among other schools.

Reese averaged 10 points and seven rebounds per game his junior season of high school but shined on the AAU travel circuit last summer.

This article has been up for two days, yet no squawks from the faint-hearts about Martin's low recruiting standards. Would have been helpful to have some stats on this guy. Being a Missouri guy who probably played against some good St. Louis area competition and who is familiar with Martin, we can at least hope that he has potential to contribute in another year or so.

I wouldn't put much stock in the Jr year numbers. Sounds like he developed well over the summer in the AAU circuit. Lots of these players at this age blossom quickly. His Sr stats will probably look somewhat better. When these kid's game takes off you gotta be positioned at the right place and right time to get them.
