Passley, a 6-foot-5 wing man from Indianapolis, transferred to UT from Wisconsin-Milwaukee and sat out the 2005-06 season. He is projected to be a significant contributor in 2006-07. Cordell Passley, Anthony's brother and a heralded high school junior, already has committed to be part of Tennessee's 2008 signing class.
While Anthony Passley is back in the fold, two Vols remain in limbo. Major Wingate, the 6-foot-10 senior center who was suspended from the team following a positive drug test several weeks ago, is still working his way back into Pearl's good graces.
Finally, spring signee Ramar Smith is looking to achieve the necessary standardized test score to enroll at UT. Toward that end he will take the SAT and ACT this summer. Smith is a celebrated 6-foot-2 guard from Detroit who is considered a possible first-year starter at point guard for the 2006-07 Vols.
