Ex-VCU Forward Terry Larrier to Transfer to Connecticut

Kevin Ollie and the Connecticut Huskies struck it rich on the transfer market once again Thursday, as they got Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) transfer Terry Larrier to commit to the program.

With Shaka Smart leaving VCU for Texas, Larrier, a 6’8” wing from the Bronx, was looking for a new start elsewhere. His connection to Ollie was the deciding factor in picking UConn.

Evan Daniels of Scout.com broke the news on Thursday (h/t Don Amore from the Hartford Courant):

“It was my relationship with Kevin Ollie [that made the difference],” Larrier told Scout.com’s Evan Daniels. “He recruited me in high school and our relationship is real good. He’s just a good dude, a stand-up dude. We talk all the time. I think he’s done a good job with the UConn program.”
Larrier was down to UConn and Virginia Commonwealth when he made his original choice two years ago. As a freshman at VCU, he played 18.5 minutes a game, averaging 6.6 points and 3.0 rebounds, with a high of 21 points against Maryland-Eastern Shore. But when coach Shaka Smart left for Texas, Larrier decided to transfer.

Larrier will have to sit out the 2015-16 season as per transfer rules. He will have three years of eligibility left with the Huskies. As previously mentioned, Ollie is getting done with transfers, as he already got two major transfers in Sterling Gibbs (Seton Hall) and Shonn Miller (Cornell).
