Phillips to transfer to Tech

Guard Shembari Phillips announced that he will be transferring to Georgia Tech this afternoon following 2 season at Tennessee. He had been rumored to be leaning towards the Jackets since last week.


Phillips would be returning home since he played high school basketball for 3 years at Tucker High School and 1 year at Wheeler High School. He averaged 6.2 points and 3.1 rebounds in his time with Tennessee - appearing in 31 games.

The 6-3 guard will sit out the 2017-18 season as part of his transfer and then is expected to be a contributor to the Yellow Jackets - particularly with his reputation for playing defense and rebounding.
