At this point, it may be a shorter list to tell you who isn’t leaving the Tennessee basketball program this offseason.
The latest to hit the transfer portal is Corey Walker Jr., who was a part of last season’s top five recruiting class. The former four-star prospect did not play last season after suffering a toe injury in November, and will be searching for a new program over the next several weeks.
Have learned that Tennessee basketball forward Corey Walker has entered the transfer portal. Was a four-star member of Tennessee’s 2020 recruiting class.— Matt Zenitz (@mzenitz) April 9, 2021
Walker was the 93rd overall prospect in the 2020 class, per 247Sports. He follows Drew Pember, Davonte Gaines and E.J. Anosike to the transfer portal. Five-star freshmen Jaden Springer and Keon Johnson have also left the program to declare for the NBA Draft.
Senior forward John Fulkerson is the lone decision left to be made, as he weighs whether or not to return for a sixth season.
Tennessee has since added Auburn transfer Justin Powell and French shooting guard Quentin Diboundje. Five-star guard Kennedy Chandler and four-star guard Jahmai Mashack complete the 2021 class for the time being.
Rick Barnes is left with Olivier Nkamhoua and Uros Plavsic in the post, pending the Fulkerson decision. Tennessee will likely add a big from the transfer portal as they continue to pursue five-star power forward Brandon Huntley-Hatfield, who could reclassify to the 2021 class.
Get ready for an entirely new Tennessee basketball roster this fall.
