Former Boston College guard Matt Humphrey has transferred to WVU and will be eligible to play in the upcoming basketball season. Humphrey averaged just over 10 points a game for the Eagles in the 2011-12 season.
Because he has already graduated with a bachelor’s degree, Humphrey will be immediately eligible and have one season left to play for the Mountaineers.
Humphrey makes the 13th scholarship player the Mountaineers have for the coming season.
Two scholarship freshmen — guards Eron Harris and Terry Henderson — are already enrolled in summer school at WVU. West Virginia’s third freshman recruit, Elijah Macon, has not satisfied the NCAA requirements to be eligible for the 2012-13 season.
Macon is now enrolled in three classes at Marion Franklin High School in Ohio. Macon needs to complete those classes, earn high grades in all three, and then see if his grade point average and ACT score will allow him to be eligible.
If Macon does become eligible and enrolls at WVU it would mean the Mountaineers would have 14 scholarship athletes or one over the limit allowed by the NCAA. Some personnel move would have to take place in order to scale back to the 13-scholarship limit.
