GoVols247: Vols out of the race for Kerry Blackshear

Reports have one of the biggest names on the transfer market heading to another SEC school.

Former Virginia Tech power forward Kerry Blackshear Jr. is expected to go public with his transfer destination at some point Wednesday night, but the Vols won't be the landing spot. Florida, Kentucky, Arkansas and Texas A&M are other schools that have been involved, as well as the Hokies recruiting him to return to his previous school.

Blackshear took back-to-back visits to Tennessee and Kentucky earlier this month. Arkansas also hosted the 6-foot-10, 250-pound big man on a visit and Texas A&M and his former head coach Buzz Williams tried to get him on campus in College Station.
