Terry Larrier to transfer out of the VCU program


Terry Larrier is transferring out of the VCU program.

The former top 50 recruit averaged 6.6 points and 3.0 boards for the Rams as a freshman, showing flashes of the potential that got him recruited by the some of the biggest programs in the country. Larrier picked VCU over UConn, but earlier this spring, Shaka Smart left VCU and took over as the head coach at Texas.

A 6-foot-8 wing with long arms, Larrier has the kind of potential that will make him one of the most highly-regarded players on the transfer market. He had a bit of an inconsistent first year on campus, but a lot of that was the result of having to fit into VCU’s ‘Havoc’ system while playing behind Treveon Graham, one of the best players in the history of the program.

Larrier will have to sit out the 2015-16 season but he will have three years of eligibility remaining.
