Here is release from VCU.

RICHMOND, Va. – Less than a month after graduating from Florida State with a degree in interdisciplinary studies, Terrance Shannon, a 6-8, 240-pound forward, has enrolled at VCU. He will be eligible to play immediately.  

"We’re excited about Terrance’s arrival at VCU. He comes from a very strong program and has had significant success at a high level," Head Coach Shaka Smart said. "We look forward to the toughness and aggressiveness that Terrance will add to our frontcourt."

Last season, he was the Seminoles’ third-leading scorer (7.9 ppg), second-leading rebounder (5.9 rpg) and led the team in steals per game with 1.2.

During his time at FSU, he played in two NCAA Tournaments and one NIT. He earned a medical redshirt for the 2011-12 season after a shoulder injury limited him to just seven games.

The Forsyth, Ga.  native fortifies a VCU frontcourt that includes All-Atlantic 10 selection Juvonte Reddic, rising junior Jarred Guest and freshmen Mo Alie-Cox and Antravious Simmons.

Shannon joins four other newcomers on VCU’s roster next season. The Rams return six players from NCAA’s Tournament team. Sophomore Teddy Okereafor and freshman Justin Tuoyo have decided to transfer from the program.
