Tennessee adds Olivier Robinson Nkamhoua to recruiting class

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — 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.

Robinson Nkamhoua was born in Finland and attends Bishop Walsh School in Cumberland, Maryland. He is rated as the nation's No. 110 prospect in his class according to composite rankings of recruiting sites compiled by 247Sports.

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).
