Kevin Punter picked Tennessee over Missouri.
The 6-4 shooting guard from State Fair Community College in Sedalia, Mo., announced his decision to play for UT coach Donnie Tyndall and the Vols on Twitter on Monday morning. He told the News Sentinel via text message that he planned to sign with UT "a few minutes" after his announcement.
Punter had previously narrowed his choices to UT and Mizzou, the school he de-committed from when former Tigers coach Frank Haith left for the vacant job at Tulsa. Punter's official visit to Knoxville from Friday through Sunday helped him finalize his decision.
The soon-to-be junior will have two seasons of eligibility at UT and can play immediately upon arrival. The 20.3 points he averaged last season will be a welcome addition to a team that graduated leading scorer Jordan McRae.
Punter is the second player Tyndall has landed since he replaced former UT coach Cuonzo Martin. Forward Jabari McGhee of Hargrave Military Academy in Chatham, Va., signed last week.
