KNOXVILLE - Tennessee appears to have filled one of two open scholarships for its 2018-19 men's basketball roster.

Richmond graduate transfer guard Khwan Fore announced his commitment to the Volunteers on Monday night via Twitter. Fore averaged 11 points per game for the Spiders in the 2017-18 season.

He will be able to immediately use his final year of eligibility with Tennessee.

Tennessee still has one scholarship available for the upcoming season. That number could increase to two, if Admiral Schofield elects to remain in the NBA draft. The deadline for Schofield to remove his name from draft consideration is May 30.

Fore seems a natural candidate to fill the void left by the departure of James Daniel III, a graduate transfer guard who played a key role off the bench as the Vols won a share of the SEC regular-season title and advanced to the second round of the NCAA tournament.
