‘Tis the season of transfers in the College Basketball world. Tennessee has been pretty quiet on this front so far with just one 2019 scholarship to give, but they’re now being connected to a guard from Utah State by ESPN’s Jeff Goodman.
Utah State transfer Koby McEwen has heard from Creighton, Ohio State, Marquette, Oregon, Iowa State, Tennessee, Grand Canyon, Arizona State and Akron thus far. Averaged 15.6 points as a sophomore.— Jeff Goodman (@GoodmanESPN) March 31, 2018
Koby McEwen announced that he intends to transfer following a head coaching change at Utah State. McEwen is a former four-star recruit and has averaged 14.9 and 15.6 points per game in his two seasons at Utah State.
McEwen would have to sit out a year, per NCAA rules. The Toronto native would have two years of eligibility remaining.
The 6-4, 200 pound guard is going to have quite the market. He’s a ready-made starting guard for almost anyone in the country. As Goodman points out, Creighton, Ohio State, Marquette, Oregon, Iowa State and Arizona State have already reached out, along with Rick Barnes and Tennessee.
Tennessee will see three spots open after next season with Admiral Schofield, Kyle Alexander and Chris Darrington set to move on. Three-star Davonte Gaines is currently the one commitment of the 2019 class.
