KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee has released 6-foot-8 forward CJ Turman from his letter of intent, leaving the Volunteers without any of the four basketball recruits who signed with them in November.
Tennessee athletic department spokesman Tom Satkowiak confirmed Monday that Turman requested a release that was granted by new Volunteers coach Donnie Tyndall, who was hired Tuesday. Forward Phil Cofer and guards Larry Austin Jr. and Jordan Cornish had been granted releases last week.
All four prospects signed with Tennessee when Cuonzo Martin was still coaching the team. Martin left April 15 to take over California's program.
The 247Sports Composite, which measures rankings of all the major recruiting services, rated Austin as the nation's 129th prospect, Cofer as No. 144, Turman as No. 155 and Cornish as No. 183 in the 2014 class.
