Antonio Barton will transfer to Tennessee, according to brother Will Barton

USA TODAY Sports

He'll be eligible immediately for the Vols.

Former Memphis Tigers guard Antonio Barton will transfer to the Tennessee Volunteers, his brother Will Barton tweeted Sunday. Barton will be eligible to play immediately.

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.

Barton chose Tennessee over the Texas A&M Aggies, the Maryland Terrapins and the Kansas State Wildcats, according to the Baltimore Sun.
