    Tennessee’s basketball team is welcoming in five new additions to the roster for the 2017-18 season. And those newest players were given their jersey numbers this week according to a report from 247Sports.

    Freshmen Zach Kent, Yves Pons, and Derrick Walker join transfers James Daniel III and Chris Darrington as the newest additions to the Vols’ basketball roster. They replace graduating seniors Robert Hubbs III and Lew Evans as well as Shembari Phillips and Kew Parker who elected to transfer after the season.

    Here are the jersey numbers for the newest Vol basketball players:

    James Daniel III: No. 3
    Chris Darrington: No. 32
    Zach Kent: No. 33
    Yves Pons: No. 35
    Derrick Walker: No. 15

    Note: Junior walk-on guard Brad Woodson switched his number from 32 to 12 so Darrington could have the number.

    Despite Yves Pons not officially being with the team until later this summer, he was still given an official jersey number. Head coach Rick Barnes says he expects Pons to join the team in late July.
