KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee added experience, all-around talent and depth in the post on Tuesday, as graduate transfer Schaquilla Nunn (pronounced sha-KWEE-la) from Winthrop University signed an SEC Grant-In-Aid with the Lady Vols.

UT head coach Holly Warlick officially announced the addition of the 6-foot-3 senior center, who sat out the 2015-16 season with a broken foot. A preseason first-team All-Big South pick entering last year, Nunn averaged 11.2 points and 10.3 rebounds in her three seasons with the Eagles. She already holds Winthrop career records for most rebounds (910) and blocked shots (279) while starting 86 of 88 games played.

Nunn put up 13.7 points and 11.3 rebounds per contest as a junior in 2014-15, tallying WU single-season records of 333 rebounds and 109 blocks. She finished the year ranked ninth in NCAA Division I in blocks per game (3.63) and 15th in rebounds per contest (11.3). She was named All-Big South First Team and Big South Defensive Player of the Year for her efforts.

With 20 double-doubles as a junior, Nunn ran her career total to 49, including a 12-point and 15-rebound effort vs. Tennessee in Knoxville on Nov. 21, 2014. She has 53 career double-digit rebounding efforts to her credit as well.

She also holds a record for triple-doubles, becoming the quickest Division I women’s player to record her first one, doing so in the second game of her rookie campaign in 2012.

Nunn, from Fayetteville, Ga. (Fayette County H.S.) became the fifth player from the Peach State to grace the Tennessee roster, following in the footsteps of fellow 2016 signee Kamera Harris, a 6-3 freshman center from Hampton (Dutchtown H.S.) who signed on April 13.

Other Georgians playing for UT include redshirt senior Andraya Carter (Flowery Branch/Buford H.S.), sophomore Te’a Cooper (Powder Springs/McEachern H.S.) and redshirt junior Diamond DeShields (Norcross/Norcross H.S.).

“We are really pleased to welcome Schaquilla to our program,” Warlick said. “She’s a very talented and highly-motivated player and one who has a great deal of experience at the college level. I am extremely impressed with her maturity and focus as well, and all of those attributes are going to help our team in the coming season.

“Schaquilla is very excited about becoming a Lady Vol, and certainly we are looking forward to blending her and Kamera Harris with our returning players. They provide us good size and depth in an area we needed to address, and we are equally pleased to add two quality young ladies to our group.”
