Charlotte transfer forward Igor Milicic Jr. will officially visit Tennessee basketball next Tuesday, a source confirmed to RTI on Saturday afternoon.

Milicic entered the transfer portal after his junior season at Charlotte and has two seasons of eligibility remaining. The 6-foot-10, 225-pound wing played his freshman season at Virginia before transferring to Charlotte for the last two seasons.

As a junior with the 49ers, Milicic averaged 12.8 points and 8.5 rebounds per game. While his 6-foot-10 bod would indicate that he’s a center, Milicic is really more of a stretch four that has the ability to play small forward. He was efficient as a shooter last season, making 49% of his field goal attempts and 38% of his three-point attempts while making 56 triples over the course of his junior season.

Playing in the American Athletic Conference last season, Charlotte played three ranked teams. Milicic totaled eight points and six rebounds against Duke, 13 points and five rebounds against Florida Atlantic and eight points and five rebounds against South Florida.

Transfer portal rankings vary on Milicic. He’s unranked according to 247sports while ranks Milicic as a four-star recruit and the No. 152 player in the transfer portal.

Milicic is coming to Tennessee shortly after an important visit weekend where the Vols will host Hofstra transfer Darlinstone Dubar and Belmont transfer Cade Tyson. Like Milicic, Dubar is a true stretch four while Tyson is a true wing and one of the best shooters in the transfer portal.

It’s been a busy stretch for Tennessee basketball in the transfer portal. The Vols have lost four players in the portal since the season ended and currently have six scholarships to work with as they look to fill out their 2024-25 roster.
