Virginia Tech men’s basketball added South Florida transfer center Michael Durr on Wednesday afternoon. Like every other transfer this year, Durr will be eligible immediately.
Durr spent three years at South Florida, where he averaged 6.7 points and 6.5 rebounds per game for his career. His best season came as a junior in 2020-21 when he averaged 8.8 points and 7.9 rebounds in 19 games for the Bulls.
Listed at 7-0, 250, Durr is a center. His presence on the roster means that Keve Aluma could now see minutes at the power forward position if Mike Young feels like that’s a better fit.
Durr, originally from Atlanta, scores nearly all of his points in the paint. However, he can step out and hit the outside jumper at times, making four of his 20 three-point attempts this past season. He had 10 points and seven rebounds against Virginia Tech back on November 29.
Note: Durr later decommitted, on May 10, 2021.
