KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Tennessee point guard Kennedy Chandler has declared for the NBA draft and is signing with an agent after his freshman season with the Volunteers.

Chandler announced his decision Tuesday in a social media post. He said he’s humbled to be so close to a lifelong dream.

Chandler came to Tennessee as the top-rated point guard in the class of 2021. He helped lead the Vols to their first Southeastern Conference Tournament title in 43 years and a No. 5 ranking. The Vols lost in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.

Chandler led Tennessee in scoring, starting all 34 games played.
