    Tennessee coach Holly Warlick believes improving her team's toughness can keep the Lady Vols from peaking too early for a second straight season. The Lady Vols headed into the postseason on a roll in March but couldn't maintain that momentum in the NCAA tournament. They missed the Final Four for a sixth straight season, losing in the regional semifinal. In an interview with The Associated Press, Warlick said that "I thought we were tough at times (last season), but not all the time. I thought...

Knoxville, Tn - Willie Carmichael, a 6-8, 210-pound forward from Apopka, Fla., has signed official paperwork to attend Tennessee and join the men's basketball program, head coach Donnie Tyndall announced Wednesday.

Carmichael will be a freshman next season with four years of collegiate eligibility.

He had previously signed to play for Tyndall at Southern Miss but was granted a release after the coaching transition that brought Tyndall to Tennessee.

“Willie Carmichael is my type of frontline guy,” Tyndall said. “He’s tough, athletic and hard-playing. As he gets stronger, he will have a greater and greater impact on our team – both defensively and as a rebounder.”

Carmichael attends Wekiva High School in Apopka, where he was coached by Scott Williams. Carmichael was rated as the 25th-ranked prospect in the state of Florida by FloridaHoops.com.

This past season, Carmichael helped power Wekiva to a 25-5 record, a District 4 second-place finish and the Florida Class 7A regional semifinals. The Orlando Sentinel named him the 7A State Player of the Year.

As a junior in 2012-13, he averaged 11.2 points and 6.9 rebounds while recording six double-doubles and leading the Mustangs to the Florida Class 8A quarterfinals. He averaged 4.8 points and 4.6 rebounds as a sophomore in 2011-12.

He played AAU ball for the Florida Tarheels Elite program.

Carmichael is the fifth member of a UT signing class that includes Devon Baulkman, Jabari McGhee, Detrick Mostella and Kevin Punter.
