Tariq Owens Commits To Tennessee

May 22, 2014 3:09 PM

Tariq Owens has committed to Tennessee as a member of the 2014 incoming class.

The 6-foot-9 power forward had previously signed with Ohio before head coach Jim Christian left for the Boston College job. Owens selected the Volunteers over Temple and UT-Martin.

Owens is rated as a three-star recruit and should have a chance to contribute immediately due to the losses of Jarnell Stokes and Jeronne Maymon.

Tennessee Focuses Coaching Search On Michael White

Apr 20, 2014 12:48 PM

Tennessee is focusing its coaching search on Michael White of Louisiana Tech.

The Volunteers are looking for a replacement for Cuonzo Martin, who left the program for California.

A source told CBSSports.com that UT has informally contacted some "A-list" candidates but that the interest hasn't been mutual. Another source told CBSSports.com that at least one potential candidate expressed no interest mostly because Tennessee's roster is in bad shape.

White just finished his third season at Louisiana Tech, where he averaged 28 wins over the past two seasons and finished tied for first both years.
