Storm Murphy recently announced his intentions to transfer from Wofford and use his one season of graduate eligibility for the Virginia Tech Hokies basketball team. He is reunited with Mike Young who coached the Wofford Terriers for 17 seasons. Murphy was a sophomore when Young left to become the Virginia Tech coach in 2019, but has blossomed since his departure. This last season he was First Team All-Southern Conference and averaged 17.8 points per game.

The Hokies have yet to take the court for the tournament, but with Murphy’s commitment it’s hard not to look into the future. Wabissa Bede and Cartier Diara and the only two graduating players for the Hokies. With their departures will Murphy be able to fill the void? In this podcast we’ll explore what the Hokies can expect in the upcoming season with Murphy in the fold.
