Murray A Mountaineer?

In a post to a Twitter page that is reportedly his, La Salle transfer Aaric Murray said early Saturday morning that he is "the newest member of the west [sic] Virginia team!" while on a visit to Morgantown this weekend.

Murray, who was recruited by WVU out of high school before choosing to attend La Salle instead, had reportedly narrowed his choices to the Mountaineers and Kansas in recent weeks.

The 6-foot-10, 250-pound product was in Morgantown for a weekend visit and attended Friday night's Gold-Blue spring football game.

Where he went afterwards is not known, but if the Twitter feed @Aaric24 is his, he was apparently up late into the night.

The tweet that read "I'm the newest member of the West Virginia team!" came from an iPhone at 3:22 a.m. on Saturday.

Murray then attempted to direct the message to the attention of former West Virginia guard Joe Mazzulla, and fielded a question from Philadelphia 76ers forward/center Marreese Speights, who said "O thats where u going [sic]."

"Yo yeah bro," Murray answered back. is attempting to confirm the news and will have more information as it becomes available.
