KNOXVILLE, Tenn. โ€” Tennessee women's basketball has added another piece to its roster for the 2022-2023 season.

Missouri State forward Jasmine Franklin announced on her social media she is transferring to come to play for the Lady Vols.

She sat out most of last season with a torn ACL. She played in 11 games in which she averaged 14.9 points, 12.1 rebounds, 2.4 blocks, and 1.8 steals per game. Franklin was considered a favorite to win Player of the Year in the Missouri Valley Conference.

She was a two-time  All-MVC first-team selection during her time with her previous school through four seasons. Franklin finished her career with second-most blocked shots and third-most rebounds in Missouri State program history.

This marks the third transfer Tennessee has gotten this offseason. Guard Rickea Jackson, who led the SEC in scoring with Mississippi State last season, and former Minnesota guard Jasmine Powell have joined the program.
