Tennessee Vols guard Jordan Bone has decided to test the NBA draft waters, according to his official Instagram account.

Bone’s decision to receive feedback from the NBA doesn’t mean he absolutely won’t return to Tennessee.
However, Bone told 247Sports that he feels like he’s going “all in” with his decision to enter the draft, saying “There is always a chance that I come back but honestly if I put myself in a position to go then I’m going all in.”
The 6-foot-3 Nashville native averaged 13.5 points per game as a junior this past season. He also averaged just under six assists per game. That’s quite an improvement from his sophomore season when he averaged 7.3 points per game and 3.5 assists per game.
Bone has until May 29 to withdraw his name from the NBA draft if he wishes to return to Tennessee, though that doesn’t seem like a likely outcome at this point.
“I’m extremely blessed to be in my position but if the opportunity is there to take then I’m going to take it”, said Bone when asked by 247Sports about his decision.
Vols star forward Grant Williams is also a candidate to declare early for the NBA draft
