The transfer of freshman guard Kwe Parker opened up one scholarship for the 2017-18 roster, and according to a report, the Vols could potentially be filling that with one of the most prolific scorers in the nation.
Howard grad transfer James Daniel tells me he has cut his list to Michigan, Ohio State, Tennessee, and DePaul. Immediately eligible.

Daniel, a 6-foot, 175-pound guard, led all Division I players in scoring in 2015-16 with 27.1 points per game. He was named the MEAC Player of the Year that season and received honorable mention status for All American.
Daniel missed all but two games of his senior season in 2016-17 with an ankle injury and is eligible to transfer and play immediately.
Tennessee returns guards Lamonte Turner, Jordan Bone, Jordan Bowden, Shembari Phillips and Jalen Johnson in 2017-18. The Vols already have commitments from three forwards for their four open spots in the 2017 class, potentially paving the way for UT to add some help in the backcourt.
