Virginia Tech rising senior wide receiver Henri Murphy announced via Twitter on Wednesday afternoon that he is transferring.

Murphy’s full statement on Twitter…

“VT, it’s been everything I’ve expected before signing plus more. God has life planned out for us all, and with trust everything will always work out. With that being said, I’ll be transferring from Virginia Tech. This school and all my brothers will always be special to me!”

Here’s the link to the Tweet.

Murphy was a JUCO prospect from Arkansas who attended East Central Community College in Mississippi.  He was a part-time player for the Hokies over 2016 and 2017, catching 13 passes for 182 yards, and getting three carries for 11 yards.

Murphy also returned 19 kicks for 472 yards in his career for an average of 24.8 yards per return.  Perhaps his biggest contribution came towards the end of the 2016 season when he took over as Virginia Tech’s primary kickoff returner.  In that season, he had 12 returns for 321 yards, an average of 26.8 yards per return.

  1. I am going to miss watching him on KR. I always thought he was so close to breaking one for a TD.

    1. Not really as he would have been graduating this year so his spot was already considered to be open for the 2019 class. However, his playing time with the 2017 and 2018 WR was going to be diminished, so his departure should not be that much of a surprise.

      However, I am glad he was here as he was important to the team in the past and he did show some skill in KO returns. Best of luck to Henri Murphy.

  2. Best wishes for success. I hate to see you leave, your speed was a real asset to the team. Where you go, get your degree. GO HOKIES!!!!!!!!

  3. Good luck young man. Glad to have you as part of the Hokie nation. Once a Hokie, always a Hokie!
