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.

  1. Do basketball players get an eligibility pass for the 2020-21 season as do football players?

    1. Answering my own question: yes. We’ll have Storm for 2 seasons if he wants. Says here he will. He left Wisconsin for Wofford to play for Mike Young. He clearly likes the guy. We’re set @ the 1 for the next 2 years w/Murphy and Padulla and Bede is he elected to return and CMY can find a way to use him. Now, we need to sign Tre Mitchell and we’ll be a complete team w/quality depth. .

  2. As I said on the basketball board. Plug Murphy in let him tutor the kid from Oklahoma and give Bede a graduate assistant job.Great job CMY

  3. I am excited about this news. The potential for this team is exciting with a PG who can contribute offensively. Way to go Coach Young.

    1. That’s the big question. He’s not big so he has to be really quick. As much as I like Cattoor’s effort and his shooting, his defense is a liability. And he has a bigger body.

      1. Go back 2 years and watch the kid perform against Kentucky I NCAA tourney, he can play and does not back down, great addition for tech.

  4. This solves the Point Guard for next season, can we get a few bigs now to take on the bigs of unc and other teams.

    GO HOKIES!!!

    1. We have the bigs in house. Just have to get them in ACC Shape. Aluma and Mutts are great starters. N’Guessin and Big John will be ready for 2021/22 season. Pemsl may stay and that would be a help.

      1. Thanks as I knew we had some, but we showed lack of depth in unc game. May the COY for Young bring in some top 200 players to Tech in all positions and build depth in the years to come. And Mutts showed toughness against unc, in fact one of his dunks had a bit of ‘tude and anger toward unc. This gives me hope in the coming year(s) on the energy being developed on the Tech BB team. And can G Amoore also play on the Men’s at PG too, she can hit the 3’s even at 5-5″; sort of kidding.
        GO HOKIES!!!

  5. Perfect. An offensive threat at point guard! Should free up wings for three pointers as well. Hopefully he is a good defensive player as well
