KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Former Howard guard James Daniel, the nation's top Division I scorer in 2015-16, says he's heading to Tennessee as a graduate transfer.
Daniel tweeted Tennessee's logo with the message .vol4life on Monday and told ESPN that he has chosen the Volunteers.
As a graduate transfer, Daniel would be eligible to play for Tennessee this season.
Daniel, a 6-footer from Hampton, Virginia, scored 27.1 points per game in 2015-16 to lead all Division I players. He also led the Division I in total free throws made (280) and attempted (331). He was named the Mid-Eastern Athletic Conference's player of the year that season.
He only played two games last season due to injury and averaged 17 points.
Daniel averaged 21 points in 2013-14 and 16.7 points in 2014-15.
