Tennessee's Golden to transfer

The SportsXchange

University of Tennessee point guard Trae Golden is transferring after three years with the Volunteers.

"I had a great three years here at Tennessee, but I plan to play my senior year somewhere else," said Golden, who averaged 12.1 points and 3.9 assists last season.

CBS Sports cited a source Tuesday that "academic issues" caused the split.

Golden has started 57 career games. There was no immediate indication from Golden or coach Cuonzo Martin where Golden could wind up. But if doesn't graduate on schedule, his options wouldn't include Division I programs.

"We want nothing but the best for Trae. Everyone associated with our program wants to see him be successful, and we wish him well," Martin said.
