Mulkey is looking to land the No. 1 player two years in a row. Mikaylah Williams, the top player in the Class of 2023, is signed with LSU. Mulkey has had success in Tennessee of late, garnering commitments from Webb-Bell Buckle teammates Aaliyah Del Rosario and Angelica Velez.

Both LSU and South Carolina played in Tennessee on Thursday, the Tigers defeating Vanderbilt 82-63 and the Gamecocks downing Tennessee 73-60.
