Tennessee is adding a veteran presence to its baccourt.

Khwan Fore, a 6-foot graduate transfer from Richmond, is committed to playing his final collegiate season with the Volunteers, he announced Monday.

A Huntsville, Ala. native, Fore spent four years with the Spiders. He made his debut in 2014, but a foot injury early in his freshman campaign sidelined him with a medical redshirt season. He spent the last two years as a starter for Richmond, averaging 11 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.7 assists per game while shooting 48 percent from the floor and 27.5 percent from 3-point range.

“I feel like it’s a very common practice in college basketball, with the rule,” Richmond coach Chris Mooney told the Richmond Times-Dispatch when Fore announced his intention to graduate transfer. “I only say I’m surprised because of how much I’ve enjoyed having Khwan and how I feel about him personally.”

Tennessee made the NCAA tournament in Rick Barnes’ second season in Knoxville, going 26-9 overall.
