KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - WVLT Sports has confirmed that Tennessee power forward E.J. Anosike is entering the NCAA transfer portal.

The 2020/21 campaign was Anosike’s first under Rick Barnes and the Big Orange. He transferred into Tennessee from Sacred Heart where averaged 15 points and 11 rebounds in his final season there.

However his production and playing time dropped considerably at Tennessee. During the season, Coach Barnes talked about the possibility of Anosike taking advantage of the extra year of eligibility granted by the NCAA, but the 6′7″ forward has decided to move on.

His departure opens up another roster spot that Tennessee can use to try and find another big man in the transfer portal.
