(93.7 The Fan) - Rice transfer Trey Murphy III will play in the Atlantic Coast Conference.  It just won't be for the Pitt Panthers.  The  6-foot-8 shooting guard chose Virginia over Pitt, Villanova and Houston.

Cavaliers coach Tony Bennett will have to wait until the 21-22 season for Murphy to suit up.  A sophomore, Murphy said he will definitely redshirt and then have two years of eligibility remaining.  Murphy led Rice in scoring last season (13.7) and was sixth in Conference USA in 3-point shooting.

Panthers coach Jeff Capel reached out to Murphy, who grew up in Durham, N.C,. almost immediately after he entered the transfer portal in March.
