Pierce played in 51 games in two seasons for the Hokies, averaging 2.6 points and 2.0 rebounds. However, his numbers dipped as a sophomore. After playing 31 games as a freshman, he played in just 20 this past season. He averaged 1.6 points per game, which was down from 3.2 the previous year.
Pierce’s transfer means that Buzz Williams has one scholarship to work with for the 2016 class. Williams could potentially have two scholarships available, depending on whether or not Ty Outlaw is cleared to play.
