Following up on a story we posted here a few weeks back, former La Salle Explorer Aaric Murray appears to have found a new home in his quest to transfer. Though the university has yet to release anything official, Murray's Twitter feed from Saturday morning leaves little room from for doubt, exclaiming "I'm the newest member of the West Virginia team!"
If true, and, hey, it probably is, the move will finally unite the 6'10 center with coach Bob Huggins, whom originally recruited Murray quite hard out of Glen Mills before the big man ultimately decided to try his luck with Dr. John Giannini and the Explorers. Murray will be required to sit out the 2011-2012 season as part of the A10's intraconference transfer restrictions. He will be eligible for play in the fall of 2012. In the meantime, at least he'll be used to rooting for the blue and gold.
