Aaric Murray No Longer A Mountaineer

USA TODAY Sports

CBS Sports reports Aaric Murray "dismissed from West Virginia" adding his name to a long list of roster movement this summer.


This is the roster listed currently (10:35AM) on wvusports.com.

That's a pretty short bench. Huggs took a gamble when Murray left from La Salle. Like many Huggs gambles as of late, it didn't work out. We were given a dose of what to expect when he was arrested and charged with marijuana possession during his year of sitting out. Last year showed plenty of off-court problems with Murray including not traveling with the team to play Michigan and countless postgame interview comments about his attitude from the coach. While this seems to be the only way "the Murray experiment" was going to end, both Kansas and Oklahoma State shown interest before his decision on coming to Morgantown. It's hard to ignore 6'10, 15.2 points, and 7.7 rebounds while playing as a freshman for La Salle, but this is the classic story of character evaluation.

Murray is free to transfer to another school and play immediately. Kirchner and my side bet of "Aaric Murray popping off and punching a ref" sadly goes with him.

UPDATE: Huggins on Aaric Murray "We came to a mutual agreement that it would be in his best interest to finish his collegiate career somewhere else."
