Sara Puckett, a four-star forward from Muscle Shoals, Alabama, committed to the Tennessee Lady Vols on Saturday.

The 6-foot-2 Puckett made the announcement on Twitter.

"I just know that's where I'm supposed to be," Puckett told TimesDaily of Florence, Alabama.

"She really liked my versatility," Puckett added. Harper has told Puckett she envisions her as a small forward or power forward.

Puckett said she chose the Lady Vols over Mississippi State, Florida State, Kentucky, Georgia and Louisville.

"As a coach you always try to teach the kids if they have a dream and work hard, they can achieve it," Muscle Shoals coach Blair Woods told the newspaper. "She's a great ambassador for Muscle Shoals girls basketball and Muscle Shoals High School in general. She takes great pride in representing our school with class and integrity."
