    Rick Barnes could be adding some major size to his team.

    CBS Sports is reporting that Daniel Giddens, a center for Ohio State, is considering a transfer to Tennessee. According to Jon Rothstein, the OSU freshman is also considering Florida, Florida State, Kentucky, Georgia and Mississippi State.

    Giddens stands at 6-foot-10. He would add some much needed size into the Tennessee roster. As a freshman, Giddens averaged 18.2 minutes per game. He tallied 3.8 points per game, 3.6 rebounds per game and 1.5 blocks per game.

    A former four-star recruit, Giddens was rated as the No. 49 player in the 2015 recruiting class according to 247 sports. In his final game as a Buckeye, Giddens posted a career high 11 points against Florida in the NIT.

    The Vols currently don’t have any open scholarships at this point, though attrition could open one up over the course of the offseason.
