Another day, another college basketball transfer connected to Tennessee. According to Evan Daniels of 247 Sports, Tennessee is one of 18 school to contact David Caraher, who is transferring out of Houston Baptist.
Houston Baptist transfer David Caraher has already heard from 18 schools, including Nevada, Oklahoma State & Tennessee, he tells @247Sports. Caraher averaged 16.2 PPG & 7.2 RPG as a freshman.— Evan Daniels (@EvanDaniels) April 3, 2018
Caraher is a 6-6 forward that averaged over 30 minutes per game for Houston Baptist. He was the leading scorer for a bad Huskies team that finished the season just 6-25. Caraher averaged over 16 points and seven rebounds per game, however.
He did all of that as a true freshman, meaning Caraher still has three years of eligibility remaining. Per NCAA rules, he will have to sit out next season.
Tennessee has also been connected to Utah State transfer Koby McEwen earlier this week.
Admiral Schofield has one year of eligibility remaining, assuming he withdraws his name from the NBA Draft this cycle. Caraher could be a plug and play replacement option for the 2019-20 season.
However, as Daniels notes, Tennessee is just one of 18 schools to reach out to Caraher. Rick Barnes and his staff will have some serious competition to beat out here.
