MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Blackman High School point guard Darius Thompson has committed to play at Tennessee.

Thompson made the announcement Saturday night via his Twitter account.

"I've finally made a decision! Im keeping it orange. Next year i will be a Tennessee Volunteer," Thompson tweeted.
