Vols

Turner

Lamonte Turner is the biggest recruit Rick Barnes has brought to Knoxville so far. He was 3/4 star prospect from Harvest, AL in the class of 2015. Lamonte¬†wasn’t able to get eligibility this season but he will almost certainly be the Vols’ starting point guard next year. When I asked Coach Barnes a couple of weeks ago who would fill Kevin Punter’s role for UT in the 2016-17 season, without hesitation, he told me¬†it will be Lamonte Turner. The kid could be something special.

If you need video proof of his potential, check out this video from Thursday’s practice where Lamonte casually makes 7 three-pointers in a row. It pretty much speaks for itself…
