With West Virginia losing most of its perimeter talent from last season, Dalton Pepper would have had a great chance to start next year.
Apparently he didn’t want to wait – the 6-foot-5 sophomore guard from Pennsbury (Pa.) is transferring.
“He’s gone,” a source close to West Virginia told CBSSports.com.
The news comes as a surprise to nearly everyone, including people inside the West Virginia program. Rumors are swirling that he could choose to transfer closer to home, most likely to Temple.
Pepper averaged 3.9 points last season, but scored 10 points in the Mountaineers’ NCAA tournament win over Clemson.
