Indiana State Transfer Guard Sets Up Visit To Tennessee

Indiana State transfer Tyreke Key will visit Tennessee next week from April 19-21, 247sports’ Travis Branham first reported Monday night.

If Key’s name sounds familiar to Tennessee fans, there’s a couple reasons that could fit the bill. The 6-foot-3 guard entered the transfer portal last offseason and was linked to Tennessee before ultimately returning to Indiana State. Key missed the entire 2021-22 season due to shoulder injury before reentering the portal this offseason.

Key is a Celina, Tennessee native and played his high school basketball at Clay County High School. The guard was an all-time great player at Clay County, breaking the TSSAA record for most points scored in a state tournament.

The shooting guard has played four seasons of college basketball at Indiana State, but has one year of eligibility remaining due to NCAA COVID-19 eligibility relief. Key averaged double-digit points in three of his four collegiate seasons including 17.2 points and 5.4 rebounds per game as a senior.

Key is a 37.4% career three-point shooter but has had a fluctuating shooting career. The guard shot 45% from three-point range as a sophomore on 3.1 attempts per game before shooting 32% on 4.3 attempts per game as a senior.

According to Branham, Key has cut his list to four schools including Texas Tech, Ole Miss and Oklahoma in addition to Tennessee.

Key will visit Texas Tech later this week from April 14-16 and has yet to set up a visit to Norman or Oxford.

The Vols currently have four scholarship spots they’re looking to fill due to the departures of Kennedy Chandler, Victor Bailey Jr, Handje Tamba, Quentin Diboundje and Brandon Huntley-Hatfield.

Tennessee hosted LSU shooting guard Brandon Murray for a visit last week, but the Maryland native committed to Georgetown on Monday.
