Tennessee forward E.J. Anosike is entering the transfer portal for a second time, 247Sports reported Friday.

The outlet also reported the departure of freshman Corey Walker, who put his name in the portal with an intention of transferring.

Anosike, a 6-foot-7, 245-pound senior, averaged only 1.7 points, 1.9 rebounds and 8.6 minutes in 22 games off the bench in his lone season with the Volunteers in 2020-21.

Anosike arrived in Knoxville last spring as a graduate transfer after averaging 11.6 points and 8.0 rebounds in 95 games (63 starts) at Sacred Heart from 2017-20.

Anosike chose Tennessee over Louisville, Gonzaga, Wake Forest, Georgia, Georgetown and Boston College. He will be eligible immediately for a final season at another school in 2021-22 as part of the NCAA's response to the pandemic.

Walker, a 6-foot-8, 219-pound freshman forward, saw no action for the Volunteers in the 2020-21 season.

Two other Vols also entered the portal recently and already have found new programs.

Drew Pember, a 6-10 sophomore, played 28 minutes over 10 games and contributed two points, three rebounds and four assists. He signed on earlier this week with UNC Asheville.

His former teammate, sophomore Davonte Gaines, announced Friday that he's moving on to George Mason. The 6-7 forward also was little-used in the 2020-21 season, playing 68 minutes over 19 games. He scored 14 points and pulled down 14 rebounds on the season.
