Vols: Tucker to enroll at Tennessee in January

By news admin

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The Lady Vols have announced that Jannah Tucker, who signed with Tennessee last year but didn't enroll, has informed coach Holly Warlick that she plans to enter school in January.

The university said in a release Thursday that Tucker, a 6-foot guard from Randallstown, Md., will practice with the Lady Vols after arriving on campus, though she isn't expected to play this season.

Her decision was first reported by Inside Tennessee.

Warlick said this summer that Tucker had opted not to enroll due to personal reasons. Tucker later told Blue Star Media that she was a victim of domestic violence that included both verbal and physical abuse.

Tucker said in Thursday's release that, "Tennessee has always been in my corner no matter what the circumstances may be."
