Terrance Shannon leaves the VCU Rams basketball program

The winding career of Terrance Shannon has apparently taken another turn as he has left the VCU Rams basketball program, not even completing one season with the team, according to an official statement from the school and head coach Shaka Smart.

“We thank Terrance for his contributions to the program and wish him luck in his future endeavors,” head coach Shaka Smart said in a statement.

This summer, Shannon arrived at VCU as a graduate transfer after deciding to leave the Florida State Seminoles where he was having one of the more underwhelming careers of anyone on that team. At the time, it seemed as if the move to VCU to play with coach Smart and company may be a beneficial one.

However, even after getting off to a fast start, Shannon has been bothered for a majority of the season by a lingering knee injury, causing him to miss three of the team’s last eight games while only seeing a total of 21 minutes in the games that he did play in.
