Howard graduate-transfer James Daniel III has named schools he is considering

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Tennessee is in the hunt for a transfer guard that led all of college basketball in scoring during the 2015-16 season.

CBS Sports college basketball insider Jon Rothstein on Saturday tweeted that Howard graduate-transfer James Daniel III has named the Vols, Michigan, Ohio State and DePaul as schools he's still considering.

Daniel, a 6-foot, 175-pound senior, is eligible immediately at his next stop after missing most of the 2016-17 season with an ankle injury.

Daniel led all Division I scorers in 2015-16, averaging 27.1 points per game. He also led all players in free throws made (280) and free throws attempted (311) while accounting for 38 percent of Howard's total scoring. He was the 2016-17 preseason player of the year and first-team All-MEAC selection.

In search of scoring guards, Tennessee has offered junior college guard Chris Darrington of Vincennes (Ind.) University and is recruiting Thomas Allen, a three-star shooting guard in the class of 2017 who recently decommitted from North Carolina State. Allen recently was offered by Kansas.
