Tennessee wing Cam Carr is one of the most intriguing players on the Vols’ roster entering the 2024-25 season and he’s providing reasons for more optimism this summer.

Carr was one of 14 players competing at the Jayson Tatum Elite Camp over the weekend, an invite only event sent to just 15 college wing players. The 6-foot-5, wiry wing turned heads at the event.

“Tennessee’s Cameron Carr looked poised for a sophomore leap at the Tatum Elite Camp,” Draft Express scout Jon Chepkevich posted on X. “Looks to be in incredible shape with cut shoulders, long arms, and a wiry strong frame. Responsible for some of the most memorable highlights of the camp, hammering home several emphatic dunks.”

Alongside Cam Carr, Duke’s Isaiah Evans and Kon Knueppel, Kansas’ AJ Storr and Rylan Griffen, UConn’s Jayden Ross, Arkansas’ Adou Theiro, North Carolina’s Drake Powell, Xavier’s Dailyn Swain, Purdue’s Fletcher Loyer, Iowa State’s Milan Momcliovich, Alabama’s Jarin Stevenson and Yale’s John Poulakidas all competed at the camp.

Carr is coming off a freshman season where he played just 4.3 minutes per game and averaged 1.6 points. The Minnesota native had some promising moments in big games including against Kentucky when he threw an alley oop to Josiah-Jordan James and in the Sweet 16 against Creighton when he hit a corner three-pointer late in the first half.

But while Carr was buried on the depth chart behind wings Dalton Knecht, Jahmai Mashack and James during his freshman season, he faces a much more friendly path to playing time in his sophomore season with Knecht and James off to professional basketball.

Mashack, Carr, Jordan Gainey and North Florida transfer Chaz Lanier are the four players most poised to play on the wing for Tennessee basketball entering the 2024-25 season. Who all can step up and help replaced the production of Knecht will be instrumental in how much success Tennessee basketball will have next season.
