KNOXVILLE (WVLT / -- Tennessee freshman forward Tobias Harris has decided to leave Tennessee and stay in the NBA Draft.

Harris was the Vols' leading scorer during his initial season on Rocky Top.

"[Tobias] had a great freshman season, but more importantly he also conducts himself in all the right ways off the court," UT head coach Cuonzo Martin said. "There’s no doubt he’ll be successful.

“I wish him well. I absolutely loved working with him over the past several weeks.

“He’ll always be a Tennessee Volunteer, and just like every other former player, we’re always here for him. He’s part of the family.”

The Sports Overtime team will have more information during the 6 p.m., 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. shows.
