Tennessee has landed highly rated grad transfer E.J. Anosike, he told ESPN's Jeff Borzello on Friday.

The 6-foot-6 forward averaged 15.7 points and 11.6 boards across 33 appearances for Sacred Heart in 2019-20. He was also an All-Northeast Conference first-team selection and finished fourth in the nation with 383 total rebounds.

Anosike was ESPN's sixth-ranked grad transfer and is eligible to play immediately next season. He chose the Volunteers over the likes of Gonzaga, Louisville, and Georgia.

"The first time I stepped foot on the court at Tennessee, it became my dream to one day play there," Anosike told Borzello.

Anosike's ties with Tennessee go back to his older sister's playing days at the school. Nicky Anosike suited up for the Lady Vols for four years, helping the team win back-to-back national championships.

"It's good to be following in her footsteps after seeing her success here at Tennessee," Anosike said. "I was actually at both Final Fours when the Lady Vols won championships in 2007 and 2008. And if I can get one national championship, my collegiate career will really mean something."

Anosike is the latest addition to Tennessee's roster, which is headlined by incoming five-star recruits Jaden Springer and Keon Johnson.
