My bro Antonio Barton has decided to attend the university of Tennessee for his senior year where hewill be allowed to play right away— Will Barton (@WillTheThrillB5) May 26, 2013
Barton, who was a junior last season, will play for the Volunteers in 2013-14 because of a rule that stipulates a transfer player can play immediately if he enrolls in a graduate program not available at his current school. Barton will finish his undergraduate degree this summer.
He averaged 5.6 points, 1.1 assists and 16.7 minutes per game as a junior, all career lows.
Barton will have an opportunity to play point guard for Tennessee next season. Former point guard Trae Golden was dismissed from the team in May.
