Vols land juco wing

According to the Knoxville News, Tennessee landed a verbal commitment from Charleston, S.C. native D'Montre Edwards on Saturday night.

The 6-foot-6 wing from Brevard Community College (Fla.) made his decision while on an official visit to Knoxville.

"When coach (Cuonzo) Martin first came down to visit me, I was sure that not only could he make me a better basketball player, but he could also make me a better person in life," he told the paper. "He understands all I've been through in life, and he alos gets what it's all about being a student-athlete. I knew all about him before I met him."

Edwards is the second commitment for the Vols in the 2012 class. Wing forward Derek Reese (Orlando, Fla.) made his choice in August.
