Trevor Thompson will transfer from Virginia Tech at the conclusion of the spring semester.
As a freshman forward, Thompson averaged 5 points, 4.7 rebounds and 16.2 minutes per game this past season. His father told Mark Berman of the Roanoke Times that Thompson will seek his transfer, and that Buzz Williams has granted the request.
However, Twitter is ablaze with rumors that Marquette commit Malek Harris will follow Buzz Williams to Virginia Tech. Harris is a 6-7 small forward from Illinois. He is the #104 overall recruit in the country by 247Sports, and the #77 prospect by Rivals.com.
Harris is listed with scholarship offers from Marquette, Auburn, Creighton, DePaul, Iowa, Kansas State, Missouri, Northwestern, Oklahoma State, Oregon State, Purdue and Saint Louis. At this point there is no confirmation that Harris will flip to Virginia Tech, though many Marquette sources consider it likely.
