Sic foot, nine inch forward Eric McKnight is the seventh new member of Donnie Tyndall’s Tennessee basketball team.

McKnight is a graduate transfer from Florida Gulf Coast and is eligible to play this season.

McKnight averaged 6.7 points and 5.1 rebounds per game playing the Atlantic Sun Conference. The SEC should be a significant step up in competition, but Tyndall said McKnight gives the Vols “more size and athleticiscm.”

He joins former IUPUI guard Ian Chiles as graduate transfers on Tennessee’s roster.

Tyndall also has signed high school forwards Willie Carmichael and Jabari McGhee, guard Detrick Mostella and junior-college guards Devon Baulkman and Kevin Punter this month.
