Larrier to transfer to UConn
When Shaka Smart opted to leave VCU for Texas, Terry Larrier opted to transfer. On Thursday, Larrier, a 6-foot-7 forward, informed Scout that he would continue his college career at Connecticut. “My relationship with Kevin Ollie,” Larrier said when asked why he chose the Huskies. “He recruited me in high school and our relationship is real good.” “He’s just a good dude,” he added. “He’s a stand up dude. We talk all the time. I think he’s done a good job with the UConn program. I’m excited to go to UConn.” Larrier picked VCU over UConn when he came out of high school. This time around, Larrier considered Maryland and a host of other schools. Larrier said his decision to leave VCU was tough, but one he had to make. “It’s definitely bittersweet, but I had to do what is best for me,” he said. As a freshman, Larrier averaged 6.6 points in 18.5 minutes a game. Larrier, who played with the PSA Cardinals on the AAU circuit, is a versatile and athletic forward that should excel in UConn’s uptempo style of ball. Larrier is the second transfer pick up of the past two weeks for Ollie, as they recently also added Seton Hall transfer Sterling Gibbs. Shonn Miller also opted to transfer to Connecticut this off-season.
