Matt Humphrey of the Boston College Eagles has announced that he will transfer to play for the West Virginia Mountaineers, according to Conrad Kaczmarek of BC Interrupted. Because Humphrey graduated from Boston College this past year, he will immediately be eligible to play for the Mountaineers.

The guard played one season at for the Eagles, averaging 10.3 points per game last season. Despite being the second leading scorer for the Eagles, he wasn't that good a shooter, averaging 35 percent of his shots made, 31.3 percent from three-point range. His best game was last Dec. 21 against Sacred Heart, where he went 5-of-10 from the field, three-for-six from three-point range, scoring 18 points.

This isn't the first time that Humphrey has transferred. After signing with the Oregon Ducks out of high school, he transferred after his sophomore year after starting only seven games in two seasons. Although Kaczmarek criticizes Humphrey's shot-first mentality, WVU coach Bob Huggins could use a decent shooter on his roster.
