A source told Monday morning that top-20 Class of 2013 basketball recruit Robert Hubbs has committed to Tennessee.

Gary Parrish reports Hubbs, a 6-foot-4 guard from Dyer County, Tenn. ranked 18th nationally by, visited Knoxville this weekend.

Hubbs committed to the Vols after considering offers from Duke, Florida, Missouri, Memphis and most SEC schools. Those offers accumulated on the heels of eye-catching performances this spring and summer. Hubbs wasn't a nationally ranked recruit until he followed up a solid junior season with outstanding showings at summer showcases.

In early August, he told's Jeff Borzello that Tennessee was making the hardest push.

Hubbs is the second highly rated commit for Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin. Jarnell Stokes enrolled at Tennessee in January.

"[This is] clearly a huge pickup for Cuonzo Martin," said recruiting analyst Jeff Borzello. "Hubbs is a big-time scorer, and he continues to get better."
