Kerry Blackshear is visiting Tennessee

The top player on the grad transfer market is on Tennessee’s campus.

Evan Daniels confirmed early Saturday morning that Kerry Blackshear Jr. arrived in Knoxville Friday.

An All-ACC forward that averaged 14.9 points and 7.5 rebounds per game at Virginia Tech in 2018-19, Blackshear has already visited Florida and Arkansas. Texas A&M, Gonzaga, Michigan State and Memphis are also reportedly in the mix.

He’s expected to visit Kentucky soon, but when exactly that will happen remains a mystery. Maybe he’ll make the short drive up I-75 to Lexington tomorrow? We’ll have to wait and see.

    No chance of a deep run there next year Kerry.

    So I guess he changed his mind about joining a team that has the best chance of winning a national championship.

      Tenn is stacked.

      Almighty.

      Have you seen the dudes coming in?

      They will be that force – with which to be to be reckoned.

      They’ve never made it past the elite 8, and have only been there once. Why would you believe they’re going to be great when their best team in decades is basically gone? The guys they have coming in aren’t even the one-and-done level guys you’d need to instantly rebuild

    Please change the headline to reflect the correct spelling of his last name

      Chitlins and mountain oysters.

      If he’s going to play at Tenn he’s going to have to learn to swallow those oysters uncooked and whole.

      Oh yeah and while they’re still on the bull.

    Now that we know what Balckshear is doing, what is Blackshear up to?

    If I was him, I’d do some visiting as well, just to really check out the coaches! Last time to make a impression, then I’d committed to UK

    Hate to say it, but I’m already sick of this story…..if he comes he comes; really couldn’t care less what he does every moment.

    We better hope he comes to Kentucky because our bigs will not cut it.

      Why is that? Should we just take your word on it. I believe our bugs are exactly what we need. Last year both had great block numbers for the amount of time the played. We didn’t have a rim protector last year that started and it killed us. We have length down low and if nick and EJ can gain some confidence, I don’t see why people like you keep acting like they are going to be horrible.

      I agree 100 percent. Nick and EJ are not elite. If Blackshear comes, he is the difference in contedning for a final four run. Don’t let the fan boys tell you different.

    And they rolled out the red carpet with a huge welcome at the airport. So which is going to sting the worse, Blackshear to UT or Blackshear to Memphis?

      You’d better be concerned with Blackshear to Florida
