Hofstra forward Darlinstone Dubar committed to Tennessee basketball on Instagram on Monday afternoon. Dubar officially visited Knoxville this past weekend and Tennessee was able to lock up his commitment.

Tennessee is Dubar’s third school during his college career. The super senior spent his freshman season at Iowa State before transferring to Hofstra where he starred for the Pride the last three seasons.

Dubar averaged 17.8 points and 6.8 rebounds per game last season at Hofstra. 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.

The 6-foot-8, 211-pound forward was one of the most efficient scorers in the country last season, shooting 53% from the field and 40% from three-point line. Dubar’s high three-point shooting clip is quite impressive considering how many shots he attempted over the course of the season.

The Vols have lost four players to the portal including big men Jonas Aidoo and Tobe Awaka and lost three players to graduation. With Dubar’s addition to the roster, the Vols now have five scholarships to fill on their 2024-25 roster.
