Report: FSU forward Terrance Shannon transferring to VCU
MAY 09, 2013 8:44p ET
Shannon averaged 7.9 points and 5.6 rebounds last season, playing 20 games before suffering a neck injury that kept him out for all but a few minutes the rest of the season. He played in just seven games in 2011-12 before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury.
The 6-foot-8, 240-pound Shannon graduated from Florida State last weekend, allowing for a transfer without penalty. Shannon will have one year of eligibility at VCU, which went 27-9 last season and lost to Michigan in the second round of the NCAA Tournament.
Florida State, which went 18-16 last season and lost in the first round of the NIT, will miss Shannon’s presence inside. But the Seminoles have been working to develop a trio of centers (rising senior Kiel Turpin, and sophomores Boris Bojanovsky and Michael Ojo) and also have an athletic forward in senior Okaro White.
