Tucker won't be part of Lady Vols

Tennessee women's basketball recruit Jannah Tucker won't be joining the Lady Vols.
And hear why Geno Auriemma says this UConn team deserved the title more than any before it, and why the Cardinals won't let the loss damper their historic run.
Tucker signed with Tennessee in November, but Lady Vols coach Holly Warlick said in a university release Saturday night that the 6-foot guard from Randallstown, Md., has chosen not to enroll at the school ''due to personal reasons.''
Tucker was rated as the No. 8 overall prospect in the 2013 class by ESPN's HoopGurlz recruiting service. Tucker was part of a class that included 6-6 post player Mercedes Russell and 5-11 guard Jordan Reynolds, who are on campus and will begin classes Monday when Tennessee starts its second session of summer school.
The loss of Tucker leaves Tennessee's current 2013-14 roster with 10 players.
