The Southeasten Conference has denied former Florida Gulf Coast forward Eric McKnight's transfer to Tennessee.
McKnight planned to play for UT as a graduate transfer during the 2014-2015 season. He is a 6-foot-9 forward and averaged 6.9 point and 5.1 rebounds last season.
Tuesday Tennesee coach Donnie Tyndall released a statement saying, "We have been informed that Eric McKnight has been denied the graduate transfer waiver by the SEC.
He continued, "We pursued this issue through the proper protocol, and I respect the process. Although we are disappointed that Eric will not be joining our program, we are focused on moving forward."
