    Virginia Tech transfer Kerry Blackshear Jr. will visit Tennessee this week and will also visit Kentucky, according to Evan Daniels.

    Kentucky got Nick Richards and E.J. Montgomery back after they tested the NBA Draft waters, and would like to add Blackshear, too.

    Tennessee lost Grant Williams to the NBA Draft

    The 6-foot-10 Blackshear tested the NBA Draft waters but opted to withdraw and transfer. He averaged 15 points and 7.5 rebounds per game for the Hokies and started all 35 games. The points and rebounds per game and games played were all career-high marks for Blackshear Jr.
