Trae Golden to Transfer From UT
Only a few days after Trayvon Landry was released from his letter of intent, another player will not be joining the BasketVols for the 2013-2014 season. Rising senior point guard Trae Golden will be transferring from Tennessee, per several sources. Rumors began to appear on Twitter Tuesday afternoon with the university confirming the news around 12:45.
Rising senior Tennessee basketball player Trae Golden will transfer following the completion of the spring semester.
“We want nothing but the best for Trae,” UT head coach Cuonzo Martin said. “Everyone associated with our program wants to see him be successful, and we wish him well.”
In three seasons with the Vols, Golden appeared in 96 games with 58 starts – all at the point guard position. He averaged 9.7 points, 2.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists during his career on Rocky Top.
A native of Powder Springs, Ga., Golden led Tennessee with a career-best scoring average of 13.6 points per game as a sophomore in 2011-12. He averaged 12.1 points this past season.
“I had a great three years here at Tennessee, but I plan to play my senior year somewhere else this fall,” Golden said. “I really appreciate the staff and all the great support from Vol fans. I’m definitely going to miss my teammates. I want them to have nothing but success in the future.”
