Small forward Jordan Adams is one of the many prospects out of Oak Hill Academy, and ESPN has him ranked as the 50th best recruit in the nation.

Do you have any funny or interesting recruiting stories?
[Laughing] Yeah, well, he's fired now, so… we had a game [during the high school season] and there was this girl, she was beautiful.

Sounds like Tennessee's vaunted hostesses/courtesans hit the road on occasion.
