KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee has released 6-foot-8 forward Phil Cofer from the letter of intent he signed in November.
Tennessee athletic department spokesman Tom Satkowiak said Friday that Cofer has been granted a release. Satkowiak said that 6-foot-8 forward CJ Turman also is expected to seek a release, though Tennessee hasn't received a formal request from him.
Guards Larry Austin Jr. and Jordan Cornish received releases on Wednesday.
All four recruits signed with Tennessee when Cuonzo Martin was coaching the team. Martin left for California on April 15 and was replaced on Tuesday by Donnie Tyndall.
Tyndall had said Thursday he believed Cofer and Turman were leaning toward requesting releases.
Cofer, the son of former Tennessee football player Mike Cofer, may now restart his recruiting process and could go to Tennessee or another school.
