Tennessee has finally solved the puzzle of how to get down to the NCAA maximum allowed scholarships of 13.
Volunteers commit, Travon Landy, has been released from his national letter of commit. The the guard had been committed to Tennessee since December of 2011.
The news was first reported by Brendan Quinn of the Knoxville News Sentinel.

On Saturday Travon Landry was on a official visit to New Mexico according to Quinn.
The return of Jordan McRae and Jarnell Stokes left the Vols with 15 scholarship players, two over the limit. Center Yemi Makanjuola was granted a release from his scholarship in April, which left the Vols only one over the limit.
The Vol’s are expected to be one of the teams to beat in the SEC next year. With Stokes and McRae returning and a healthy Jeronne Maymon coming back there’s no reason for the Vols not to embrace the high expectations they’ll be facing.
Unfortunately for Travon Landy, he won’t be a part of those plans next season.
