Staff Report • Mar 6, 2009 at 12:00 AM

According to the Knoxville News Sentinel, Tennessee junior forward Tyler Smith -- widely considered a lock to turn pro after this season -- is now considering returning to the Vols for his senior year.

"It's 50-50 right now,'' Smith said.

Smith admitted the decision had been creeping into the back of his mind as the Vols went through their ups and downs this season.

"I've just been talking to my teammates and my mom about my future as far as next year. I've decided I'll just make a decision and go with it. I can't worry about it.''

Smith said he'd sit down and talk with Coach Bruce Pearl after the season, and for now he is, "just playing and having fun."
