Hofstra transfer wing Darlinstone Dubar is officially visiting Tennessee basketball this weekend, 247sports Travis Branham first reported  and a source confirmed to RTI on Wednesday morning.

Dubar is a rising super senior after averaging 17.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game last season at Hofstra. The 6-foot-8 wing was an incredibly efficient scorer shooting 54% from the field and 40% from three-point range. Dubar scored nearly 18 points per game on just 12.5 shots while making 73 three-pointers over the course of the season— a mark that would have ranked second on the Vols’ roster behind only Dalton Knecht last season.

A Charlotte native, Dubar fits a major position of need for Tennessee basketball in the portal this offseason. The Vols need to replace the versatility that Josiah-Jordan James brought them last season with James’ ability to defend multiple positions, particularly power forwards, while also spacing the court with his ability to make perimeter jumpers.

At 6-foot-8, Dubar brings that exact ability to Tennessee. The Hofstra transfer is a better perimeter shooter than James but isn’t as strong of a defender as James is.
