Chris Darrington, James Daniel III, Yves Pons, Derrick Walker and Zach Kent make up the 2017 recruiting class and will try and get Tennessee back into the NCAA tournament. As the Vols prep for a tour of Europe, the team released the newcomer’s jersey numbers for the 2016-2017 season.

15 - Derrick Walker

The team will be in Europe from August 2nd through August 12th. They are scheduled to play in three games while overseas. Additionally, James Daniel III (ankle), John Fulkerson (elbow, wrist) and Lamonte Turner (shoulder) will all miss the Rocky Top League this month.
