It’s been a crazy offseason for Tennessee basketball. Before they finished their last game, all we knew for sure about the Vols was that they had two recruits coming in, five-star guard Kennedy Chandler and four-star wing Jahmai Mashack.
Since then, though, they got hit with four players entering the transfer portal, one transfer arriving, two assistant coaches being replaced, three players entering the NBA Draft, three new recruits committing and two players announcing their return.
