Hofstra guard Darlinstone Dubar announced Monday he will transfer to Tennessee.

Dubar is coming off an all-Coastal Athletic Association second-team selection thanks to his most productive season yet. He averaged 17.8 points, 6.8 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 1.2 steals per game and shot 39.9 percent from 3-point range.

In three seasons at Hofstra, Dubar put up 13.2 points and 5.4 rebounds per contest over 100 games (99 starts). He spent his freshman season in 2020-21 at Iowa State and averaged 2.3 points and 2.4 boards over 16 games (seven starts).

Tennessee is coming off a 27-9 season and an SEC regular-season crown (14-4 record in conference). The Volunteers reached the Elite Eight, where they lost 72-66 to Purdue.

Tennessee was guided by transfer-portal addition Dalton Knecht of Northern Colorado. Knecht won SEC Player of the Year after averaging 21.7 points and 4.9 rebounds while shooting 39.7 percent from 3-point range, and is now projected as a lottery pick in the upcoming NBA draft.
