Ledlum played a starring role for Harvard last season, starting 27 games and leading the team in scoring (18.8 points), rebounds (8.5) and steals (1.8) per game. He was a first-team All-Ivy League selection for his efforts.

Ledlum has appeared in 70 career games with 41 starts for Harvard while averaging 13.6 points per game. He is a career 52% shooter from inside the arc but struggles from 3-point range at 29%.

Even with his limitations from deep, Ledlum should be a key piece and key defender for the Vols heading into the 2023-24 season.
