Vols in mix for top hoops transfer on market

GoVols247’s Wes Rucker and Grant Ramey went into the Fort Rucker Sun Room — the Fort Rucker Studio somehow is still being renovated — to discuss some interesting developments in Tennessee’s efforts to put together a much different basketball roster heading into next season.Despite losing a pair of non-seniors — junior stars Grant Williams and Jordan Bone — to the NBA Draft, Tennessee did plenty of late work in the spring signing period and transfer market and is now back at the NCAA’s maximum allotment of 13 scholarship players on the active roster.Interestingly, though, the Vols are still very active in the 2019 recruiting market.One 2019 prospect — 6-foot-11 France native Josaphat Bilau — took an official visit to Tennessee earlier this week, and the biggest star on this year’s grad-transfer market is set to visit Knoxville on Friday.Kerry Blackshear Jr. — a 6-foot-10 forward who averaged 14.9 points, 7.5 rebounds and 2.4 assists per game last season at Virginia Tech — has opted to spend his senior season at a new program, and he’s seriously considering Tennessee as that new program. And he’s visiting Knoxville on Friday.Of course, programs across the nation are pushing hard for Blackshear, and Tennessee’s biggest rival — perennial national power Kentucky — also is getting a visit from Blackshear.Blackshear has already visited Florida and Arkansas, and he’s visiting Kentucky after his trip to Knoxville, and several other programs — including Memphis and Gonzaga — are reportedly pushing for him, as well.What would it mean for Tennessee to land Blackshear — or Bilau, for that matter? What would that mean for the Vols next season? And how would they make those scholarship numbers work? There are plenty of questions to discuss, and they’re discussed in detail in this episode.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

Neyland Stadium booze, OL injuries, etc.

GoVols247’s Wes Rucker, Patrick Brown and Ryan Callahan went into the Fort Rucker Sun Room — the Fort Rucker Studio somehow is still being renovated — to have the Great Booze Debate promised last week.The SEC recently changed its policy to allow programs to decide for themselves whether they’d like alcohol to be served to the masses (not just those in luxury suites) as football stadiums. Some programs have already come out and said they won’t serve it. At least one (Texas A&M) has said it will serve it, and everyone expects LSU to do the same.What about Tennessee, though? Tennessee is a wildcard in that discussion for several reasons.The pros, cons and everything in between regarding booze are discussed in this episode, but not at the beginning.It was announced this week that Tennessee freshman offensive lineman Melvin McBride — who only recently arrived on campus — is retiring from the game because of a medical issue. More than one handful of Tennessee O-linemen have had to retire from the game because of medical issues the past few years. That phenomenon and its effects are discussed in this episode.Good news has happened this week, two. The Vols picked up two commitments over the weekend, and they added another on Wednesday just after this podcast was recorded. As always, there’s plenty of recruiting discussion in this episode.Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices

What to know about Vols' 2019 football schedule

GoVols247’s Wes Rucker, Grant Ramey and Patrick Brown went into the Fort Rucker Sun Room — the Fort Rucker Studio somehow is still being renovated — to discuss Tennessee’s 2019 football schedule.We took a few big questions — some from readers, some from ourselves — and tried to answer them.- Is Tennessee more likely to go 6-0 in its “tossup” games or find a way to beat either Alabama, Georgia or Florida?- Which should-be win on Tennessee’s schedule is the scariest?- Which should-be loss on Tennessee’s schedule is the most winnable?- Did Tennessee’s two open dates come at a great time, a terrible time or somewhere in between?A couple of non-football topics — a recap of Tennessee baseball’s return to the NCAA Tournament under new (and hopefully still) coach Tony Vitello, and the Tennessee basketball team’s addition of transfer guard Victor Bailey Jr. from Oregon — also emerged in this episode.Bailey’s decision will be the centerpiece of a hoops podcast next week, but a brief discussion of him was included in this episode, as well.Learn more about your ad choices.
