Dalton Pepper To Transfer To Temple

While there has yet to be an official announcement from West Virginia University or Temple,  all signs point to Dalton Pepper transferring next season.

Pepper, who was a high school standout in Philadelphia, has played sporadically for the Mountaineers since coming to campus two seasons ago.  After showing great promise as a freshman, Pepper struggled to crack the rotation for the Mountaineers this past season.  Despite limited playing time, Pepper showed flashes of potential greatness.  He turned in his finest defensive performance as a Mountaineer in this season's NCAA first round game against Clemson.  Pepper stole the ball on three consecutive possessions and converted his takeaways into point to help the Mountaineers advance to the next round.

Pepper confirmed the transfer via text message to CSNPhilly late Monday night, citing his father's health as a the primary factor in his decision.  West Virginia moves forward with only four returning players and a highly touted incoming class next season.
