INSIDE THE TENNESSEE LADY VOLS' CLASS
For the second year in a row, Holly Warlick cast her line into Oregon and reeled in a star.
Jaime Nared, the No. 5 prospect in the nation from Westview (Portland), will be joining two of her best friends and former AAU teammates, Mercedes Russell and Jordan Reynolds, on the Lady Vols' roster. Nared, a 6-foot-1 wing, averaged 23.7 points, 9.6 rebounds and 4.7 steals per game last season as a junior.
Warlick also stayed in-state and landed guard Alexa Middleton, the No. 28 prospect in the nation who stars on a Riverdale (Murfreesboro) team that has won back-to-back state titles as well as the national title in 2012-13.
Kortney Dunbar, the No. 79 prospect in the nation from Illinois, rounds out the class.
Warlick received signatures from all three players during the early signing period.
