Getting to know a new Lady Vol

Jordan Reynolds has left her home state of Oregon and is now in Tennessee to begin her college basketball career. The 5-11 guard answered a few questions from InsideTennessee so fans could get to know her a little better. Go inside for her answers.

Jordan Reynolds was a key recruit for coach Holly Warlick because her commitment last fall showed that Warlick could still lure top talent to Knoxville after Pat Summitt retired. Reynolds, who is from Portland, Oregon, has enrolled for the second summer session at Tennessee.
