La Salle transfer Murray

to visit West Virginia

The Aaric Murray school tour will continue this weekend at West Virginia, the Daily News has learned. Earlier, Murray visited Oklahoma State. Kansas was on his itinerary last weekend, but he did not take that visit.

Murray, after playing two seasons at La Salle, is transferring. He scored 851 points and took 444 rebounds, but this transfer was not about numbers. It was about performance, along with interaction with coaches and teammates. So, Murray is moving on.

West Virginia recruited Murray hard out of Glen Mills. If he ends up going to WVU, he will enter the second-chance world of Bob Huggins. Once a player decides to play for Huggins, however, there is only one way - Huggins' way. If a player does not do things the way the coach wants them done, he does not get a third chance.
