WVU Guard Eron Harris Requests Release, Will Transfer

Baton Rouge, La. -

Following a disappointing end to his sophomore season, West Virginia guard Eron Harris has asked the university for his release and plans to transfer. 

"I have enjoyed my time at West Virginia University the past two years, but I want to transfer closer to home," Harris said Monday in a statement. "I want to be closer to my family, especially being around my little brother."

Harris was honorable mention All-Big 12 following a season in which he averaged 17.2 points per game for the Mountaineers, good for fourth-best in the conference. Home for the sophomore is Indianapolis. 

"We have enjoyed Eron and his contributions to Mountaineer basketball," Head coach Bob Huggins said. "Of all people, I certainly know what it is like to be closer to family and friends, that's why I did it as a student-athlete then as a coach."

The Mountaineers bowed out of the first round of the NIT with a loss to Georgetown, ending a 17-16 season.
