KNOXVILLE — Former Oregon guard Victor Bailey Jr. has transferred to Tennessee and will play for the Vols in the 2020-21 season.

Tennessee coach Rick Barnes announced Tuesday that Bailey will enroll in summer school. He’ll sit out the 2019-20 season because of NCAA transfer rules and have two seasons of eligibility remaining.

The 6-foot-4 Bailey is from Austin, Texas, and averaged 7.4 points and 19.1 minutes for Oregon last season. He shot 39.8% from 3-point range, 41% from the floor and 91% on free-throw attempts.

One of two freshmen to play in every game for Oregon in 2017-18, Bailey appeared in 73 games for the Ducks and started eight times.

Bailey becomes the second former Pac-12 player to transfer to Tennessee in the offseason. The Vols also added former Arizona State center Uros Plavsic, who is seeking an NCAA waiver to be eligible this season.
