The in-state talent in the state of Tennessee in the Class of 2013 is more than deep enough to provide the Vols with a well-stocked recruiting board. That doesn't mean that some out-of-state efforts aren't underway though, and high-flying shooting guard Sindarius Thornwell from Lancaster, S.C. is one example of this approach.
Thornwell (6-foot-5, 180 pounds) entered this summer as a high-profile prospect and had done nothing to change that perception. He had a shot at measuring himself against some of the best talent in the nation last week at the NBA Players' Association Top-100 Camp in Charlottesville, Va.
