Rick Barnes has filled one of two open scholarship slots for the Tennessee Volunteers. We saw Tennessee explore the transfer market pretty thoroughly this offseason, now they’ve landed one in the form of Khwan Fore.

Fore announced his decision on Instagram on Monday night. He will play his final year of eligibility for the Vols.

Fore is a grad-transfer point guard who will fill the role vacated by James Daniel. He isn’t quite as decorated as Daniel was coming in, however. The six-foot Huntsville native averaged 11 points for the Richmond Spiders last season, which was his third year as a major contributor in the program.

He scored a season high 25 points in Richmond’s final game of the season against St. Bonaventure.

One interesting note on Fore is his three point percentage. That number has dropped from 36 to 33 to 27 in consecutive seasons. Fore isn’t a volume shooter from the outside, however. He attempted just 40 shots (James Daniel took 121) from deep last season. Still, that’s something that Barnes and his staff can hopefully tune up before November.

So after Jordan Bone and Lamonte Turner, it’s going to be Khwan Fore off the bench. Tennessee struck out on a couple of 2018 prospects, but Barnes at least gets his one year depth band-aid here.
