We’ve all heard about Tennessee star Jarnell Stokes’ size 20 shoes, and apparently he wants to use them to squash some Wildcats in Rupp Arena before he leaves college basketball. According to recent comments the Volunteer offered, it’s clear his ego is as big as his feet.
“We can beat any team,” Jarnell Stokes told Tennessee beat writer Brandon Quinn. “Just making the tournament isn’t enough this year. We’d walk into Rupp Arena [last year] and say, ‘OK, maybe we can beat them, but we probably won’t.’ It’s definitely different this year. We plan on winning in Rupp Arena.”
After facing up against Nerlens Noel, I’m pretty sure Jarnell will be putting his giant foot squarely in his mouth.
