Tennessee Basketball: Lady Vols add veteran depth with graduate transfer

Tennessee Basketball Lady Vols has added a new graduate transfer, Jordan Walker, from Western Michigan to add veteran depth.

Kellie Harper wasn’t the first choice for Tennessee basketball Lady Vol fans, but she was Athletic Director Phillip Fulmer’s pick, and she hasn’t disappointed.

Tennessee basketball, both men’s and women’s, will have high expectations in 2020-21, and the Lady Vols have added veteran depth with Jordan Walker transferring from Western Michigan.

This is the second graduate transfer that the Lady Vols have added this offseason. First, the Lady Vols added Liberty Flames transfer forward Keyen Green, and now Walker will be joining the roster as well.

Walker will have two years of eligibility left when she arrives to Knoxville. In her three years at Western Michigan, she played as a freshman, took a medical redshirt her sophomore season, and played last season for her junior season.

She’s no one to scoff over, either. Last year, she averaged 16 points, 6.2 rebounds, two assists, and two steals a game. Before joining Western Michigan, she was named Miss Basketball in the state of Michigan in 2017.

After Zaay Green and Jazmine Massengill transferred out of Knoxville, there was a gap with the guard positions on the Lady Vols roster. Walker will help fill that much-needed gap for the Lady Vols.

The Lady Vols roster will look a bit different this year, but if Harper can do something similar to what she did last season, then I don’t think there will be too much to worry about.
