KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee guard Trae Golden has informed the Volunteers' men's basketball coaching staff that he is transferring.

Golden said Tuesday in a university release that “I had a great three years here at Tennessee, but I plan to play my senior year somewhere else.”

The 6-foot-2 guard from Powder Springs, Ga., ranked third in the Southeastern Conference with 3.9 assists per game and was the Volunteers' third-leading scorer with 12.1 points per game as a junior this past season. He started 57 games over the last two years.

Tennessee coach Cuonzo Martin said in a statement that “everyone associated with our program wants to see him be successful, and we wish him well.”
