KNOXVILLE (WATE) - The Tennessee basketball team picked up a nationally ranked point guard for the 2014 class.

Larry Austin, Jr. announced on Thursday he will sign with the Vols.

Austin is a 6-1 guard from Lanphier High School in Springfield, Ill.

His high school coach told insidetennessee.com that Austin is a "great leader and floor general who can get to the basket at will and finish strong at the rim."

Lanphier head coach Blake Turner told insidetennessee's Randy Moore that Austin can also set-up his teammates with great passes.

"His passing is phenomenal; he's a great distributor," said Turner.
