Boston College's Matt Humphrey To Transfer To West Virginia, According To Report

Shooting guard Matt Humphrey will transfer to West Virginia after graduating from Boston College, according to a report from ChicagoHoops.com.

Humphrey was the second-leading scorer on the Boston College Eagles last season with 10.3 points per game, but shot an inefficient 35 percent from the field and 31.3 percent on three-pointers.

As a recent graduate, Humphrey will be eligible immediately at West Virginia. As BC Interruption's Conrad Kaczmarek notes, the change of scenery might be best for all parties.

It's pretty clear that this BC basketball team is in it's infant stages of a rebuilding process and for all the talent that Humphrey possesses, he simply wasn't right for this team. A bunch of freshman and sophomores don't need a veteran guard simply chucking shots and making questionable basketball decisions. Naturally, we wish Matt the best with the rest of his basketball career but I don't want people to get the wrong idea about this transfer. This isn't players leaving the program because of Coach Donahue's ability or the direction of the organization. This was simply a player that didn't fit with the needs of our team and would be better suited in a different environment.
