The evidence bears that last sentence out, as Hewitt had seen no action for WVU this year. A sprained ankle had hampered Hewitt in recent days.
No word was available on a possible transfer destination, but Florida Gulf Coast and Radford are two schools on the list of possibilities. Florida Gulf Coast has three West Virginians on the roster, including Bryan Crislip, Ryan Hopkins and Noah Shepherd. All three played at Parkersburg South High School. Radford had recruited Hewitt as a high school player before he signed with the Mountaineers.
The transfer leaves WVU with only 11 players available for duty on the current roster, including four walkons.
