The new coach of the Lady Vols has confirmed that sophomore Lady Vols guard Evina Westbrook will transfer.
In a statement released by the university, Lady Vols head coach Kellie Harper said, “Evina and I met to discuss her future, and she shared with me that she has decided to transfer. We wish her well.”
Westbrook came to Tennessee as one of the most highly-touted of the 2017 class. She was ranked as the No. 2 overall player and the No. 1 guard in the 2017 class by both espnW and prospectsnation.com. She was named the 2017 USA Today National High School Player of the Year.
Westbrook raised eyebrows following the Lady Vols first-round exit from the NCAA Tournament when she said changes needed to be made to the program off the court, specifically the coaching staff.
