Tobias Harris, as expected, committed to Tennessee on Thursday.
"I really have a great relationship with Coach [Bruce] Pearl and his assistant coach [Tony] Jones," Harris said. "It's just a family atmosphere down there. I got along with the players real well, and it's just a great opportunity and fit for me."
MaxPreps.com ranks Harris No. 21 in the Class of 2010. The 6-foot-8 forward joins Trae Golden (No. 59) and Jordan McRae (No. 87) to comprise a three-player class that should be among the Top 15 classes nationally when team recruiting rankings are finalized.
Harris is from New York.
He also had offers from Syracuse, Kentucky, Maryland, Georgia Tech, Louisville and West Virginia.

Tobias Harris will announce his college decision Thursday at 6 p.m. ET.
The 6-foot-8 forward is No. 21 in MaxPreps.com's Class of 2010 rankings. He's officially still considering a host of schools, among them Louisville, Syracuse and Maryand. But an unannounced visit to Tennessee on Tuesday has most believing Harris will be a Vol considering he had previously visited the UT campus. In other words, there was no reason for Harris to stop by UT again on his way back from Georgia Tech if he didn't plan to commit to Bruce Pearl's program. But either way, the official announcement comes Thursday night.
