    Tennessee Basketball has officially dropped the jersey numbers for all the incoming players. In total, the Vols have brought on seven players to the team via both the transfer portal and traditional recruiting.

    The Vols have signed six high school recruits from the 2022 class and brought in one player from an SEC program through the transfer portal. On Sunday, ESPN’s Joe Lunardi updated his Bracketology and moved Tennessee down a spot in his rankings. However, the Vols do still hold a high ranking.
