According to CBS Sports’ Jeff Goodman, power forward Terrance Shannon is leaving Florida State and headed to VCU. Since he has graduated, he will be allow to play this coming season.
This comes as a bit of a surprise. I didn’t even know Shannon was considering leaving the Seminoles.
A long, athletic big man, Shannon has struggled to stay healthy while in Tallahassee. This past season, he missed 14 games and never cracked the starting lineup, averaging 8.3 PPG.
At the very least, because of his athleticism and length, he should fit nicely into Shaka Smart’s full-court press.
As for Florida State, I’m not sure I’m willing to call this a big loss, but certainly surprising. As of now, he was going to have a legit shot to start his senior season.
Of course, this departure is going to led a lot of people to speculate regarding Andrew Wiggins. Think about it, Shannon has no reason to stay if he thinks (knows) Wiggins is coming to Florida State, thus taking some of his playing time.
