Cade Phillips talked in his Tennessee commitment announcement about the possibility of leaving Jacksonville for a high-powered prep basketball program that could elevate his game and get him ready for the next level.

The 6-foot-9 four-star made it one-and-done with the Golden Eagles, announcing on social media Wednesday he was headed to Link Academy in Branson, Mo.
