KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee has added forward Olivier Robinson Nkamhoua (pronounced OH-liv-ee-AY RAH-bin-sin KAHM-wuh) to its incoming freshman class.

School officials announced Wednesday that the 6-foot-9 forward signed a letter of intent and will enroll at Tennessee next month.

Tennessee coach Rick Barnes said in a statement that “Olivier is just starting to scratch the surface of his potential, and we’re excited about his development once he arrives.” Barnes added that “he’s a very athletic forward who has a level of versatility on both sides of the floor.”

Robinson Nkamhoua joins a recruiting class that also includes guard Josiah-Jordan James (No. 21 in the 247Sports Composite) and forwards Davonte Gaines (No. 206) and Drew Pember (No. 192).
