As we’ve noted before on the board, don’t be surprised if the Vols oversign in November. If they could land Springer I don’t see them backing off their pursuit of P.J. Hall. Oak Hill big man Dylan Cardwell would also remain a possibility. If they do oversign, that doesn’t necessarily mean Barnes has designs on running someone off. It just makes sense in today’s climate, with the way that players move around, to protect yourself as a program. Tennessee has had offseason departures through transfers or guys going pro early after each of Barnes’ seasons. In some cases, those were surprises, or at least weren’t expected in the previous fall, so taking an extra player in these times is just smart.
