Virginia Tech picked up Wofford graduate transfer Storm Murphy on Saturday night. He’ll rejoin the head coach who recruited him out of high school – Mike Young – for his final season of eligibility.
Murphy was a four-year starter for the Terriers, and he’s taking advantage of the NCAA rule that the 2020-21 season doesn’t count towards eligibility. He’s 6-0, 180, and originally from Middleton, Wisconsin. He started 119 of 126 career games at Wofford.
Murphy’s best season at Wofford was 2020-21 as a senior. He averaged 17.8 points and 4.3 assists per game while shooting 40% from three-point range and 84.3% from the free throw line. For his career he is a 41.7% three-point shooter (225-of-539) and an 84.9% free throw shooter (174-of-205). He has 469 career assists.
Murphy is likely to step into the starting lineup immediately in Blacksburg.
