Hoops: Terrance Shannon to transfer to VCU

Florida State forward Terrance Shannon has found a new home for a final season of college basketball.

Shannon, who spent four seasons at FSU including a redshirt year in 2011-12, will transfer to Virginia Commonwealth University for his last year of college eligibility, Warchant has confirmed. CBS Sports' Jeff Goodman first reported the transfer, citing an unnamed source. Since Shannon graduated this spring, he will be able to compete this upcoming season.

A Florida State spokesman could not officially confirm that Shannon had transferred as of Thursday night.

When healthy, Shannon was a key contributor off of FSU's bench, but health was hard to find for the 6-foot-8, 240-pound forward. Shannon suffered serious injuries in each of the past two seasons causing him to miss a combined 41 games.

He played in 20 games last season, averaging 8.7 points and 5.6 rebounds, but missed 13 gamed due to injuries. Eleven were caused by neck injury suffered in a scary fall during the Seminoles' game against UVA on Jan. 19. Shannon was carried off on a stretcher with 3:59 to play. He was diagnosed with a sprained neck and was able to return to action at the tail end of FSU's season.

He redshirted during the 2011-12 season, playing in seven games before dislocating his left shoulder against UConn. Shannon had surgery on his shoulder in January of 2012.

Shannon played in 72 games for FSU during his career. With his departure, FSU is left with four seniors for 2013-14; Okaro White, Kiel Turpin, Ian Miller and Robert Gilchrist.
